The Skeletal Muscle Stem Cells and Regeneration Conference

July 24–29, 2022
New Orleans, LA
#SMSC22

Summary

July 24-29, 2022

Launched in 1998, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the only conference that focuses entirely on adult skeletal muscle stem cells and skeletal muscle regeneration. It provides a comprehensive analysis and the integration of recent discoveries pertaining to the regulatory mechanisms controlling normal and abnormal functions of muscle stem cells in muscle homeostasis, regeneration, hypertrophy, aging, and disease.

The conference aims to accelerate the translation of fundamental advances into novel clinical treatments through the interactions of basic and clinical researchers. It provides opportunities for interaction and mentoring between junior scientists and senior investigators to foster career development.

Program

The main themes of this meeting are: 1) Molecular mechanisms regulating muscle stem cell biology and skeletal muscle regeneration in health, disease, and aging; 2) How muscle stem cells interact with other cell types in growing and regenerating muscle; 3) Opportunities for translating and applying muscle stem cell and regeneration research.

Over eight oral plenary sessions, the Conference will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Molecular regulation of muscle stem cells
  • Dynamics of MuSC States and muscle regeneration
  • Muscle stem cell niche and cell signaling
  • Muscle disease and aging: from mechanisms to therapy
  • Muscle stem cell metabolism and exercise
  • Regeneration of the neuromuscular and myotendinous junctions
  • Engineering and translating muscle stem cells
The program also includes:
  • Meet the Expert” sessions developed for students and postdocs to meet experts in the field and receive career and scientific advice
  • Two Workshops in career development themes
  • Four Poster Blitz sessions where poster presenters have a chance to pitch their poster in a short oral session
