Get Connected 6: Matrix in Fibrosis

The Wellcome Centre for Cell-Matrix Research will host the sixth of our popular Get Connected Research symposia and this year the focus will be Matrix in Fibrosis. There will be 3 thematic sessions covering Mechano- Immuno- and Disease-matrix and we have an excellent faculty of invited speakers. The meeting will be held on 9-10th October 2017 at the University of Manchester with the programme starting in the morning of Monday the 9th and finishing on the evening of Tuesday the 10th. 

Registration will open shortly.
