  2. Cardiac/smooth muscle ultrastructure and regulation, Chair: Steve Marston, Imperial College London, United Kingdom
  3. Cytoskeleton and (mechano)signalling, Chair: Elisabeth Ehler, King's College London, United Kingdom
  4. Small molecule modulators of sarcomere protein function, Chair: Chiara Tesi, University of Florence, Italy
  5. Regulation and kinetics of thick-thin filament interaction, Chair: Joanna Moraczewska, Kazimierz Wielki University, Bydgoszcz, Poland
  6. Myopathies: Mechanisms, modeling, medication, Chair: Coen Ottenheijm, Amsterdam University Medical Centre, Netherlands
  7. Novel insight into pathomechanisms of cardiomyopathy and heart failure, Chair: Pieter de Tombe, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
  8. Muscle in a dish: New models for the study of muscle function and dysfunction, Chair: Wolfgang Linke, University of Muenster, Germany
  9. Muscle and beyond, Chair: Jolanta Redowicz, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, Poland

The registration and abstract submission as well as payment systems are now operating

The registration fee is 10 € for young participants (under 35), 30 € for retired scientists and 50 € for regular participants. There is a possibility of payment via PayPal (preferable) or a traditional bank transfer (details in payment section).

The deadline for registration and abstract submission as well as payment is July 16th, 2021.

There is a possibility of submission of manuscripts related to the Conference topics to Acta Biochimica Polonica, the journal listed in the Journal Citation Reports that is published by the Polish Biochemical Society.


Both scientific and organizational details are being revealed continuingly,  so stay tuned.

We hope that despite all the circumstances you will be able to join us in September afternoons to discuss the latest achievements in the muscle research with the top scientists in the field.
