On behalf of the German Society of Connective Tissue Research (DGBF) and the Swiss Society of Matrix Biology (SSMB) we are pleased to invite you to the XXIInd FECTS Meeting in Davos from July 3rd - 7th 2010. We give also a warm welcome to our non European colleagues because the meeting is arranged as a joined meeting with the International Society of Matrix Biology.

As usual the topics include all aspects of the extracellular matrix. While the 'Gordon Research Conference on Basement Membranes' will not be continued in 2010, we will offer a focus on basement membranes. The conference will also cover acquired and genetic diseases, cell therapy, stem cells, biomaterials and biomechanics, inflammation and angiogenesis, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.

The meeting includes plenary lectures given by outstanding scientists in the field, workshops with short talks selected from submitted abstracts, and poster sessions for individual scientific discussions.

At the meeting the most recent data from all aspects of basic and applied extracellular matrix research shall be shown. It will foster the scientific exchange between junior and senior scientists and will give opportunities for a lively discussion between researchers from academic and industrial institutions. We encourage especially young researchers and scientists at the beginning of their career to participate in this meeting.

We are convinced you will enjoy the scientific discussions in the beautiful and exciting environment of the Swiss Alps in Davos.

Herzlich willkommen in Davos!
See you in Davos!
