Who you will reach at this event:

ASMB: The American Society for Matrix Biology (ASMB) was founded in 2000 to increase awareness of the field of extracellular matrix (ECM) biology, to enhance ECM research, and to facilitate interactions among scientists and trainees, with the overall goal of furthering the application and translation of knowledge to impact human health. This field encompasses the structure and function of ECM components, the receptor-mediated interactions of these components with cells, how these interactions influence intracellular signaling and gene expression, the orderly progression of these processes during development, and the alteration of these processes in hereditary and acquired diseases, particularly in tissue injury, repair, oncogenesis, and aging. Hence, ECM biology and the 2024 ASMB Basement Membrane Workshop are clinically relevant to tissue engineering, stem cell biology, cancer, metastasis, metabolic processes, wound healing/fibrosis, and inflammation—factors pertinent to diseases across all organ systems.


ASMB theme and format:  The workshop will be jointly chaired by Dr. Roy Zent of Vanderbilt Medical Center and Dr. Jeffrey Miner of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and will be hosted by Rachel Lennon, PhD and the University of Manchester. This will be the fourth in a series of highly successful Basement Membranes workshop (the previous ones being held in 2010, 2017 and 2019), and it serves as the only international forum dedicated to the dissemination of new ideas and information about the structure and biological functions of basement membranes (BMs).

Meeting Participants: The 2024 ASMB Biennial Meeting represents a unique opportunity for scientists and medical professionals working in research, clinical, and applied disciplines related to ECM biology to meet, present data, discuss, learn, and network. With the society’s non-profit focus on investigation and education coupled with the innovative and original program, attendance is expected to be 100 participants, including both ASMB members and non-members. Attendees include basic scientists, bioengineers, and clinician scientists, as well as scientists from the biotech industry, at all levels of career development.
