General information:

The meeting is open to all SPP members and associated groups and aims to provide a
discussion point for data and especially to intensify collaborations and elucidation of common
principles. The meeting is especially for the Ph-D students and the young scientists and is
thought offer a platform for discussion of their recent data.

The meeting of SPP1782 will take place from March 21st to 22nd at the Zentrum für Operative
Medizin (ZOM), Oberdürrbacherstraße 6, 97080 Würzburg.

Location: Würzburg
