The international fall conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) will take place from Sunday, September 24th to Wednesday, September 27th, 2017 at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany.
With this congress, GBM will bring together a wide range of researchers from Germany and from across the globe to explore ‘The Molecular Basis of Life’. The congress will cover the entire spectrum of molecular biosciences with symposia on
• Chromatin and Gene Expression
• Cell Signaling and Membrane Trafficking
• Subcellular Organization
• Molecular Machines
• Molecular Mechanisms of Disease and Therapies
• Emerging Methods
In addition, there will be sessions on research in the bioscience industry, spectroscopic methods and biomarkers, career development and education as well as activities tailored specifically for scientists in the early stages of their careers.
Oral presentations from selected abstracts will provide a forum especially for young scientists within each session and as part of selected short talks and will be chaired by leaders in the field.
We kindly request the active participation of young researchers by submitting scientific contributions by June 30, 2017 at http://www.molecular-basis-of-life.org
Early registration: May 31, 2017
Abstract submission: June 30, 2017

Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.

Research from a leading international expert on the health of the Great Lakes suggests that the growing intensity and scale of pollution from plastics poses serious risks to human health and will continue to have profound consequences on the ecosystem.
