The 2020 AWTRS conference will be held in conjunction with the Pan Pacific Connective Tissue Societies Symposium 2020 and the scientific meeting of the Matrix Biology Society of Australia and New Zealand.

Updates will be available on the meeting website

The Australasian Wound & Tissue Repair Society (AWTRS) and the Matrix Biology Society of Australia and New Zealand (MBSANZ) are two leading scientific societies focused on the fundamental biological and biochemical mechanisms involved in wound healing and tissue repair and their application in the clinic, as well as the roles of the extracellular matrix in biology and pathology.
We’re pleased to announce that the Pan Pacific Connective Tissue Societies Symposium 2020 will still be going ahead with all the elements our community has come to expect, but with one key difference – we’re moving online! The virtual format has many benefits for our participants, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers.
The meeting website will be kept up to date with all the latest news about the program, speakers, registration, abstract submission and much more. We very much look forward to welcoming you to our virtual event in November 2020.
