SSMB Annual Meeting and Vice President

First of all, I wanted to thank the members of the Swiss Society for Matrix Biology (SSMB) to elect me as vice-president.

Also, thank you for this wonderful 2017 SSMB Annual Meeting

We would like to thank all speakers and participants for this highly interactive and vibrant meeting. We uploaded some pictures.

The thumbnails to the pictures are found on the bottom of the "Annual Meeting" page.

This years SSMB Annual Meeting was held on February 15th 2017 in Bern.

It was our great pleasure to have two outstanding researchers in the field of matrix biology as keynote speakers:

Matthias Chiquet (Uni Bern) and Viola Vogel (ETH Zurich).
