Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

EMBO Workshop - Molecular Mechanisms of Muscle Growth & Wasting in Health & Disease

Posted on Sep 10, 2013 1:39:00 AM

EMBO Workshop: 'Molecular Mechanisms of Muscle Growth and Wasting in Health and Disease'

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.

The conference program will 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

Organization: EMBO
