CCTC 2015

21st Canadian Connective Tissue Conference 2015

Québec City | Université Laval | 28-30 May 2015

The 21st Annual Scientific Conference of the CCTS (known also as CCTC 2015) is held in Quebec city between 28-30th of May 2015. It  consists in two days of oral and poster presentations. A majority of the oral presentations are selected from the submitted abstracts to promote young scientists.

Oral and poster sessions in the following research areas will be presented:
• Stem Cells in Tissue Regeneration and Tissue Engineering
• Biomechanics, Mechanobiology, and Biomaterials
• Connective Tissue remodeling
• Connective Tissue in Disease – Clinical and Fundamental Aspects
• The Extracellular Matrix in Connective Tissues
• Genetics of Connective Tissue
• Bone, Cartilage and Tooth development
• Cellular Interactions between Connective and other Tissues
