Welcome to ETRS Annual Scientific Meeting 2019 September 11-13, 2019 in Munich 

Tissue regeneration - "From basic Science to clinical translation"

The European Tissue Repair Society  (ETRS)  is one of the oldest European wound healing societies that is dedicated to the understanding of tissue/organ restoration and rehabilitation.

On behalf of the Organising Committee for ETRS we invite you to join us for the Society's Annual Scientific Meeting to be held 11-13 September at the Isarforum in Munich.

The conference aims to showcase the most cutting edge clinical developments and basic findings on mechanisms that lead to tissue repair, wound healing, and regeneration.  The importance of proper wound healing becomes evident when our body’s repair mechanism fails, leading to either non-healing (chronic wounds), or excessive repair (fibrosis).  Impaired wound healing is a tremendous burden for patients and global healthcare systems, and is expected to further increase with longevity.  Knowledge of the fundamental repair processes is critical to control, restore and preserve the functions of injured adult tissues and organs.

The ETRS has secured a line-up of outstanding scientists from various disciplines that include stem cell biology, developmental biology, regenerative medicine, and immunology, in order to share their most recent findings from molecular and cellular to whole organism.

Munich has seen an amazing development and has become an international cool destination with an array of small bars, restaurants, shopping and cultural areas.

This complemented with an Annual Scientific Meeting that will bring together experts from a range of disciplines and provide participants with an invaluable opportunity to share knowledge, develop ideas and network with colleagues from across the region.

September is a wonderful time to explore our city and beautiful country beyond.  We encourage you to bring your family to share the experience and look forward to seeing you there.
