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.

Venue of the meeting:

The meeting of SPP1782 will take place at the Zentrum für Operative Medizin (ZOM), Oberdürrbacherstraße 6, 97080 Würzburg.
The venue can be reached from the city with a 30-35min walk or by Tram 1 and 5 (Direction Grombühl/Universitätskliniken; exit Robert Koch Straße Universitätsklinikum Bereich B; the way to ZOM will be signed out)
