Workshop - Ascona, Switzerland
This meeting will focus on the molecular mechanisms involved in muscle wasting diseases including cachexia, sarcopenia and muscular dystrophies. Its focus on disease aspects in skeletal muscle, its interactive format and its small size makes this meeting unique.
Thewill feature the following sessions:
Repair mechanisms of skeletal muscle
Disease of the nerve-muscle connection
Excitation-contraction coupling, calcium handling and mitochondria
Mechanisms controlling muscle size
Epigenetics and microRNAs in muscle function
Metabolic dynamics of skeletal muscle
Interaction of skeletal muscle with other organs
Mechanisms of sarcopenia and cachexia
Muscular dystrophies and development of therapeutic strategies
