This lunch-lunch seminar in Oslo focuses on proteoglycans and extracellular matrix in health and disease. The seminar aims to bring together young and experienced researchers in the field of proteoglycans and extracellular matrix. The event is highly relevant for cardiac researchers as several lectures will focus on extracellular matrix and fibrosis in heart.

The program will include sessions focusing on the biological role of specific proteoglycans and extracellular matrix proteins like metalloproteinases (MMPs). It will also include proteomic analyses of proteoglycans and extracellular matrix using different approaches, cell systems and disease models.
