It has been our great pleasure to welcome over 370 participants from over 24 countries to the 33rd Ernst Klenk Symposium in Molecular Medicine 2017 on "Tissue regeneration, wound healing and fibrosis: Translating basic concepts into regenerative therapy".

We received excellent feedback from the participants regarding on this years' program and the guest speakers' contribution commenting: “The talks of the guest speakers were top quality presenting interesting and novel insights into the various aspects of tissue regeneration, wound healing and fibrosis. The Klenk Symposium was one of the most exciting meetings in the field of tissue repair and regeneration in 2017”.
