Annual Symposium - Biochemical Determinants of Tissue Regeneration

11—13 December 2013

Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield, UK (15 miles from Manchester)

The Biochemical Society Annual Symposium


Meeting background

The field of regenerative medicine offers tantalising hope for the repair and replacement of damaged organs and tissues, with the ultimate goal of restoring normal tissue function. This field represents an enormous range of biological, chemical and biophysical technologies that harness the restorative properties of living materials, especially human cells, to produce new molecular and cellular medicines, diagnostics, devices and healthcare research tools.


Abstract Submission is now CLOSED.

If you wish to submit an abstract please contact the Conference Office. Late abstracts will NOT appear in the programme book. 



Earlybird registration deadline: 25 November 2013.



Biochemical Society Transactions Poster Prize of £200 will be awarded to the best poster presented at this meeting by a researcher in the early stages of their career (post-graduate or first post-doctoral position).
