International conference on muscle wasting

18 - 23 Sep 2011

Ascona, Switzerland

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.

Topics covered include:

  • Development and repair of skeletal muscle
  • Development and maintenance of the neuromuscular junction
  • Muscle intrinsic mechanisms controlling muscle size
  • Cross-talk of muscle with its environment
  • Muscle wasting and disease
  • Therapeutic strategies to counteract muscle wasting or sarcopenia

The conference is limited to 120 participants.

Participants and speakers of short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts.

The deadline for abstract submission is April 29th, 2011.

Registration will open on June 1st, 2011.
