Under the authorization of International Society for Matrix Biology (ISMB)
to the Chinese Association for Physiological Sciences, it is my great pleasure
to welcome you all delegates to the 11th Asian and Pan-Pacific Connective
Tissue Societies Symposium and the 3rd Academic Annual Meeting of the CSMB in
association with the ISMB. The symposium is scheduled to be held on Nov 16-20,
2018 in Hangzhou International Expo Center, Zhejiang Province, China, where was
the venue for G20 HANGZHOU SUMMIT 2016.
This biennial symposium on connective tissue covers multiple fields including
matrix biology, stem cell biology and applications, tissue microenvironment and
cancer metastasis. This symposium provides an excellent arena for foster
collaborations and creates sparks of thought. In particular, young investigators
will find a unique opportunity to meet and exchange views with established
researchers. This three and half days symposium will generate a collision of
highlighted research findings. Most of the distinguished scientists in the
field are invited to lecture and share their findings and educational experience
to the young generation.
We are very pleased to be the convenor of this symposium on behalf of
CSMB. We are looking forward to hosting you in Hangzhou next November.
