On behalf of the organizing committee and Maastricht University, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 8th International Conference on Annexins which will be held at the Amrâth Grand Hotel de l'Empereur, September 8th -11th 2015.

Like its predecessors, the 8th International Conference will review all aspects of annexin biology including clinical and biomarker aspects, physical chemistry and structural features, biochemistry and cell biology, functional physiology, receptors and signaling, evolution, comparative genomics, annexin SNPs, imaging and molecular biology.

As always the meeting will bring together, from around the world, the most active researchers in the field to discuss the latest findings in this fascinating area of biology. It is a unique opportunity for the ‘annexin community’ to come together to discuss problems of mutual interest and concern.

Whether you are an established annexin researcher, or new convert to the field, we look forward to welcoming you to our campus and to our meeting.

With best wishes,

Chris Reutelingsperger
