AIAS hosted Minisymposium on Endothelial – Muscle cell cross talk

Date: 5th of March, 14:00 - 16:40
Place: Aarhus Institute for Advanced Studies, Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201  

The scope of this cross disciplinary minisymposium is to disseminate new research findings, concepts, and therapeutic opportunities at the forefront of endothelial and muscle biology. The meeting aims to bring together a diverse community of researchers from basic and applied science, creating a stimulating scientific environment for discussion. The meeting is open to everyone.
