It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the BSMB Spring meeting which will be virtually hosted by the University of Surrey. 

The conference will include 5 plenary sessions covering different aspects of the interactions between lipids and lipid-derivatives such as hormones and pro-inflammatory molecules with the ECM, in different areas of research. The speakers we have invited to present their work are internationally renowned scientists in different fields of research, spanning from respiratory diseases and embryology to regenerative medicine and cell to cell communication: Robert Snelgrove (Imperial College, UK), Sirio Dupont  (University of Padua, Italy), Giampietro Schiavo (UCL, UK), Rami Hannoush (Genentech, USA), Stephen Badylacks (University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre, USA), Nicholas Davidson (Washington University, USA), Dawei Zhang (University of Alberta, Canada). 

The meeting will also host a BSMB Medal Award presentation, which will be given by Prof Kathy Cheah, from the University of Hong Kong.

We have also invited a special guest, Dr Steve Cross, a public engagement and communication consultant (https://drstevecross.wordpress.com/), who will deliver an entertaining science communication session entitled “Communicating Science and being silly”, at the end of day one. To encourage networking, attendees will also be invited to a “speed networking” session.
