Welcome to the joint EMBO-FEBS Lecture course “Molecular mechanisms of Tissue Injury, Repair and Fibrosis”. This lecture course is part of a very successful series of summer schools with a 50-year tradition on the wonderful Island of Spetses, Greece. Fibrosis is a common response of many organs to injury and causes loss of function. Recent advances have provided many new insights into the molecular pathogenesis of injury-repair and fibrosis in different organ systems. This EMBO-FEBS Lecture Course will bring together leaders in the fields of tissue injury, inflammation, repair and fibrosis with early stage researchers, i.e. Ph.D. students and postdocs. The workshop features lectures, small group discussions and poster sessions, as well as small group tutorials under olive trees or on the beach at the beautiful Anargyrios and Korgialenios School of Spetses. In addition, it features very popular dinners in small groups with course faculty (“Dine with the PI”) in the town of Spetses. The intense nature of the course creates a familiar and inspiring atmosphere and fosters interactions between participants and speakers. It thus provides a unique training and networking opportunity.
