Mucins in Health and Disease 2024 comes to Gothenburg!



We are thrilled to announce that the Mucins in Health and Disease Conference will take place on 17-20 June 2024 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The conference is a fantastic opportunity to share the latest research and discoveries in the field of mucins, covering topics such as their biochemistry, roles in health and disease, interactions with pathogens, and their potential as therapeutic targets. The conference will feature presentations from leading experts in the field and opportunities for networking with colleagues from around the world.
The conference venue, Quality Hotel 11, is on the vibrant waterfront of Göta älv flowing through the city of Gothenburg known for its beautiful architecture, vibrant cultural scene, and breathtaking archipelago. The conference coincides with the Swedish Midsummer festivities on 21-22 June and conference attendees will have the chance to experience this truly Swedish tradition.


We invite all researchers with an interest in mucins to join us in Gothenburg in June 2024 for an engaging and informative conference that is sure to advance our understanding of these fascinating molecules.
