The Conference on Structure and Dynamics of the Sarcomere, 4-6 May, Belgrade, Serbia

 

We cordially invite you to attend The Conference on Structure and Dynamics of the Sarcomere focused on function and malfunction of different sarcomeric components and proteins of striated muscles. We will also discuss various approaches to molecular and structural studies, as well as different model systems. So, this would be an opportunity to present and challenge your latest findings in fundamental research and clinical science related to muscle cells and sarcomere.
