Call for Abstracts Now CLOSED.  Late breaking abstracts opens on 1 January 2019. Deadline 15 January 2019.

Please direct all questions to fleischworkshop2019@kuleuven.be

The Herbert Fleisch Workshop is designed to bring together excellent international investigators and young and mid-career scientists working in bone and cartilage research, for vigorous data discussion and networking. Students, postdocs, and early stage PIs are therefore particularly encouraged to submit an abstract. All aspects of bone biology, basic and applied, are welcomed. As guidance, the scientific content of the meeting including submitted abstracts is expected to include the following aspects of skeletal health and disease:
• Senescence of bone cells
• Mechanosensing and bone
• Skeletal stem and progenitor cells
• Microbiome and bone
• Regulation of osteoclast differentiation
• Osteo-anabolic research and osteoblast biology
• Osteocytes
• Cancer and bone
• Skeletal development and growth
• Human and mouse genetics of skeletal diseases
• Integrative physiology
• Bone marrow environment, including marrow adiposity, skeletal vascularization, and hematopoietic niches
• Fracture repair and skeletal tissue regeneration

There will be both oral and poster presentations at the meeting, with much emphasis on discussion of posters, including active participation of the invited senior scientists. Those selected for oral presentations must bring a poster about their work to ensure discussion throughout the meeting.
All are welcome as participants, with priority in programming given to young investigators.

Travel Grants are available for selected abstract submitters, based on scientific merit.
