The second Excellence in Midkine Research
Conference was held in Istanbul, Turkey between 28th and 30th of June 2012.
The objective of the conference was to engender closer collaborations between
midkine scientists and to help accelerate scientific discoveries about midkine
into the clinic.
The conference attracted almost twice as many attendees as the inaugural
meeting in Sydney 2010. Global leaders in midkine research attended from twelve
countries around the world to present new data in a variety of fields. As well,
a comprehensive book on midkine science, Midkine: From Embryogenesis to
Pathogenesis and Therapy was officially launched at the meeting. This book
was the direct result of collaborations arising from the inaugural midkine
conference in Sydney.
It is expected that the third Midkine Conference
will be held in Kyoto, Japan, in 2014. Please send your expression of interest
