10th INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON THE CCN FAMILY OF GENES: NIAGARA FALLS, October 21-24 2019, Canada

The international Workshop on the CCN family of genes will be a milestone in the history of the International CCN society (ICCNS) and its official organ, the Journal of Cell Communication and Signaling (JCCS) of which the 10th anniversary provided the occasion for a splendid special issue in which most of our distinguished editors published key articles on their scientific activities.

Next year will be the time for another celebration. The tenth anniversary of our family meetings will be the occasion to pursue our efforts by providing the attendees of the workshop with an educational session on a topic that is biologically related to the CCN field.

After the session on "Inflammation" held at the 2010 meeting in Newcastle, Ireland, and the session on "Matricellular Proteins" at the 2017 meeting in Saint-Malo, we will be happy to welcome Janusz Rak, Peter Quesenberry and Lynne Postovit at Niagara for a special session on "Extracellular Vesicles and Cancer"

The 10th international workshop will also be the occasion to celebrate Professor CYNTHIA KENYON as the 7th recipient of the ICCNS-SPRINGER award. We are honored to welcome professor Kenyon whose seminal contribution to the field of aging through studies performed with C. Elegans, has been instrumental to the understanding of molecular processes responsible for the aging-related processes. These involve the modulation of several fundamental signaling pathways and the modification of whole set of biological traits, that are the phenotypic expression of specific genes among which some of them are shared by human and mice.

Preliminary information pertaining to the meeting program will be posted shortly.
