EMBO Workshop - Molecular Mechanisms of muscle growth and wasting in health and disease

Congressi Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland

20-25 September, 2015


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 will take place on September 20-25, 2015 at the Conference Centre Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland, the venue of choice for Congressi Stefano Franscini, the international conference platform of ETH Zurich. The center is located on a beautiful hill on top of the lake town of Ascona, in Southern Switzerland.


The conference is limited to 120 participants. As we expect more applicants, we highly encourage to submit an abstract, which will help us to select participants and speakers of short talks.
