International Conference on Proteoglycans 1999

International Conference on Molecular Interactions of Proteoglycans

August 27 -30, 1999
Shonan Village Center
Kanagawa, Japan

The organizing committee of the 'International Conference on Molecular Intaractions of Proteoglycans' cordially invites scientists who are interested in medical, biological, biochemical and biophysical aspects of proteoglycans. The conference will be held at the Shonan Village Center, a seaside resort near Tokyo, between August 27 and 30, 1999, right after the XVth International Symposium on Glycoconjugates in Tokyo. The extensive discussion in the conference will focus on the rapidly expanding knowledge on molecular interactions of proteoglycans, which will provide key information for understanding and designing therapeutic interventions of disease processes involving proteoglycans. We look forwoard to meeting you at the conference.
