Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the ABCD meeting “From stress response to tissue development and regeneration” to be held in Pavia, on the 28-29 September 2018.

The meeting will take place at the Aula del 400 Università di Pavia, piazza Leonardo da Vinci, Pavia, in the centre of the city.

This joint meeting of CSSA (Cell Stress, Survival and Apoptosis) and SCDRM (Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine) groups aims at promoting the integration of emerging concepts in the field of cell stress response with mechanisms of development and differentiation that control stem cell properties, cell/tissue plasticity and repair/regenerative processes.

The meeting will pay equal attention on new molecular/cellular basis of biological processes, normal and pathological, as well as the application of established knowledge towards applicative approaches.

The sessions of the meeting will include the following topics:

  • Molecular pathways of cell stress response
  • Survival and cell death: an intricate puzzle
  • Cell stress and diseases
  • Developmental processes and molecular mechanisms of differentiation
  • Stem cells in physiological and pathological conditions
  • Tissue repair and regenerative medicine

As usual, the setting of the conference will provide a friendly environment, aiming to stimulate discussion and promote active participation of Ph.D. students and post-docs.

We hope that the meeting will provide a great opportunity to share new ideas, start collaborations and also enjoy Pavia and the Alma Ticinensis University, one of the oldest universities in Europe.

We look forward to seeing you in Pavia!
