Conference on Structure and Dynamics of the SARCOMERE – First announcement


As the follow-up of conference Myofibrillar Z-disk Structure and Dynamics, held in 2013 in Hamburg, Germany, this meeting will be 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.


This conference is organized by the Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering ( and NMD SerbNet (Serbian Neuromuscular Disease Network). It is funded by an EU grant FP7-REGPOT-2012-2013-1 to the project “Strengthening the Research Potential of IMGGE through Reinforcement of Biomedical Science of Rare Diseases in Serbia – en route for innovation”- SERBORDISinn (
