Advances in the cellular and molecular biology of angiogenesis

27—29 June 2011

University of Birmingham, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


Meeting background

Understanding angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) is crucial to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease, alleviate developmental problems, and maximise reparative tissue remodelling. Of particular interest are those conditions where vascular growth is excessive (e.g. tumours) or insufficient (e.g. ischaemia). This meeting will emphasise an integrative approach to unravelling the molecular and cellular basis of angiogenesis.


  • Endothelial and vascular phenotypes
  • Endothelial migration and adhesion
  • Endothelial tyrosine kinases
  • Emerging areas
  • Integrative regulation


Abstract submission deadline: 25 April 2011
Abstract submission for this meeting is now closed. If you wish to submit an abstract please contact the Conference Office.


Earlybird registration deadline: 25 May 2011

The earlybird registration deadline has now passed and a £50 late fee has been added. Registration is now available.

Proceedings (invited speakers) will be published in Biochemical Society Transactions

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.

The Biochemical Society Centenary Poster Prize was awarded to Lin Cooley from University of East Anglia, United Kingdom from her poster entitled "Reversible trans-differentiation of blood vascular endothelial cells to a lymphatic-like phenotype in vitro".


Second place was awarded to Emma Maxwell from University of Sheffield, United Kingdom for her poster entitled "Modulation of Tie2 signalling by the endocytic pathway".
