International Workshop on Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plasminogen Activation

Location: Rome Global Gateway

September 22-26, 2015

This workshop is abstract driven and allows for a setting where young investigators can exchange their research ideas with more seasoned and established investigators. The purpose of the workshop is to encourage collaborations between different countries working in the area of plasminogen biochemistry and biology, and to facilitate new thoughts on how the plasminogen system functions in physiology and pathophysiology. The first meeting occurred in Amalfi, Italy in 1985 and since then it has alternated with a U.S. host city on a biennial schedule. Sponsored by the W.M. Keck Center for Transgene Research
