Don’t miss the opportunity to experience ECTS 2020 and immerse yourself in science from the comfort of your desk!

Following the COVID-19 oubreak, the ECTS Annual Congress in Marseille has been postponed to October 20-24 2020.

You can’t wait until  then before meeting the ECTS community?  Join us for a sneak peek of ECTS 2020 during a webinar event where some ECTS 2020 keynote speakers will have the opportunity to expose their latest research to the ECTS community.

ECTS2020@home:  the ECTS 2020 Avant Première  will be held on Tuesday the 19th of May at 13.50 h Central European Time (CET).  ECTS2020@Home is offered by ECTS, but registration is required.  Please confirm your attendance to this special online event here.

The program promises to be very interesting with both clinical and basic science presentations from several research areas. Prof. Natalie Sims (St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne, Australia) will start the session by presenting data on the role of osteocytic autophagy in bone mineralisation. Prof. Pieter Evenepoel (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium) will talk about the assessment of bone fragility markers in chronic kidney disease. Dr. Elvire Gouze (INSERM, Nice, France) will present data on a gene therapy approach for type II collagenopathies. Prof. Michael Whyte (Shriners hospitals for children, St. Louis, USA) will conclude the webinar event by talking about therapeutic strategies to treat chronic hypophosphatemia.
