12 February 2015

We are pleased to announce that the British Society for Matrix Biology (BSMB) satellite meeting "Advances in tendon research – from bench to bedside" will be held in London in September 2015.

This meeting will bring together leading scientists and clinicians from across the tendon and musculoskeletal research fields, providing a forum for clinicians, engineers, modellers, industry and biomedical scientists to interact. The conference will begin with workshops led by international experts, to help individuals from different fields develop a basic understanding of the techniques and concepts used in other fields, and subsequent conference sessions will cover cross cutting themes (see website for contributors).

An exciting programme of internationally renowned speakers has been confirmed, including Prof Helen Birch, Prof Michael Kjaer, Prof Jeff Weiss and Prof Jess Snedeker. There are also many slots available for short talks and posters that will be selected from submitted abstracts. Abstracts on any area of tendon research are encouraged, and all submitted abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations. Abstract deadline is the 24th July 2015.

BSMB members will benefit from a reduced registration fee, and presenter bursaries are available for eligible BSMB members. Please see the conference website for further details. The registration deadline is 31st August 2015.
