The Munich Scar Forum is a joint venture of the Institute for Lung Biology and Disease (ILBD) and the Institute for Stem Cell Research (ISF) and is organised by Prof. Magdalena Gotz (ISF) and Dr. Yuval Rinkevich (ILBD). The Munich Scar Forum aims to bridge an existing gap between basic research and clinical practice in the field of tissue scarring and fibrosis, by bringing together basic scientists, clinicians, plastic surgeons, physiotherapists, under one roof. January 12 marked the second meeting of the forum, where the audience heard lectures on the basic science and clinical management of tissue/organ scarring including brain, skin, and internal organs.
