Upcoming conferences

Towards the end of every year I find myself regretting the conferences I missed. Whether it be because I forgot about the conference after reading about it, or I found out too late to register. So this year I decided to put together a list of conferences relating to the topic/s of myogenesis, skeletal muscle, regeneration and muscle stem cells so I don’t suffer from the same level of regret. I’ll try to keep this list up to date through the year, but if you have a conference that you’re organising (or that you are attending) then let me know in the comments section below and I’ll add it to the list.
