12th International Conference on the Chemistry and Biology of Mineralized Tissues (ICCMBT)
Kongresshotel Potsdam The 'Luftschiffhafen' (aerodrome) Am Luftschiffhafen 1 D-14471 Potsdam
Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Deartment of Biomaterials
This Conference, which has been held every three years since 1980, is one of the most important scientific gatherings in the mineralization field. The meeting emphasizes a wealth of physicochemical, biological and clinical topics concerning mineralization processes in vertebrate and invertebrate species. These include, but are not limited to: cell and molecular biology of mineralized tissue formation, hormone and cytokine regulation of mineralized tissues, signaling pathways, structure and function of extracellular components of mineralized tissues, model systems of biomineralization, disorders and pathology of mineralized tissues and development of therapeutic approaches, and, new technologies for studying crystal structure and formation.
