   8th International Conference on Bone Morphogenetic Proteins September
   15-18, 2010 Leuven, Belgium

   As a tradition, the “ BMP community� organizes an international
   conference every two years. We are happy to announce that the next
   “8th International Conference on Bone Morphogenetic Proteins� will
   take place in Leuven, Belgium, from September 15-18, 2010. Previous
   meetings took place in the US , Japan or Croatia. More information and
   the history on past meetings is available via
   http://www.bmpconference.org .

   This international conference aims to bring investigators together to
   discuss the latest developments in basic, translational and clinical
   research in the BMP field. BMP technology reaches now far beyond the
   field of bone and skeletal applications. The participants will discuss
   on the role of BMPs in all body systems and propose new therapeutic
   models for the future for the treatment of congenital and chronic
   diseases such as Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, osteoporosis,
   chronic arthritis, acute and chronic renal failure, and diabetes. The
   meeting will present an outstanding program with ± 30 invited speakers
   from all over the world and we expect a strongly interactive audience
   of ±250 participants. There is ample space in the program for the
   presentation of posters and oral presentations selected from submitted
   abstracts. A first announcement of this upcoming conference and more
   information is already available on the website via
   http://www.bmpconference2010.org/ .
