15th Science Day of the Campus of Kontinkangas

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you all to participate in the 15th Science Day of the Campus of Kontinkangas on February 20th 2018. The Science Day, which is organized jointly by the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, will include invited plenary lectures by distinguished guest speakers, and oral and poster presentations of submitted abstracts. In addition, awards will be granted for the best PhD thesis of the year in the Kontinkangas campus and for the best oral and poster presentations of the Science Day. 

The year 2018, the Science Day focuses on fibrosis. We are privileged to welcome Drs. Katri Koli, Hongliang Li, Petteri Pietikäinen and Carsten Tschöpe as distinguished plenary speakers. Our guests are experts on the biological, metabolic and genetic backgrounds of fibrotic disease conditions, related translational research and the impact of fibrotic diseases in society. The research interests of our guests focus on unveiling the contribution of various causative components to the development of pathological fibrosis in human. We believe that our program will be equally inspiring to audiences with a medical background as well as participants interested in more basic science.

I would especially like to invite young scientists to introduce their results as oral or poster presentations, but would not like to forget encouraging experienced researchers to participate as well. The Science Day will be a comprehensive presentation of the diversity of research ongoing on our Campus.

Please follow the internet pages which will be updated as new information is available.

I hope to see you all at the Science Day!
