2nd World Workshop on Magnesium in Transational Medicine

2nd World Magnesium Workshop on Magnesium in Translational Medicine

 Belle-Île-en-Mer, France - 02.-05. May 2018



Dear Colleagues,


Following the successful 1st European Magnesium Workshop that took place in Smolenice castle in May 2014, and the 1st World Magnesium Workshop in Liptovsky Mikulas in February 2016 dedicated to Magnesium in Translational medicine, it is our pleasure to announce the 2nd World Magnesium Workshop.

The workshop will take place on the beautiful island Belle-Île-en-Mer in France from 2nd to 5th May 2018. Our aim is to attract mostly young colleagues who are in the process of establishing their career by investigating various aspects of magnesium action in basic and/or applied science and to accommodate the "field newcomers" amongst established members of the magnesium research community. Another aim is to get an overview about recent translational successes of magnesium in various fields.

A priority will be to create a stimulating atmosphere for fruitful scientific discussions and the establishment of scientific contacts. As an established tool for this we will again offer "Speaker's Corners", a format in which anyone can speak her/his mind and ask the experts any questions related to the field.

To encourage young scientists, the best student talk will qualify for the Award of the Scientific Committee (500 Euro). The best poster presentation will qualify for the Scientific Committee Poster Prize (250 Euro). All workshop participants will have the opportunity to vote for the "Vox Populi Prize for the Best Poster" (250 Euro).


The workshop will cover, but is not restricted to, the following topics:

-       Magnesium Homeostasis

-       Magnesium in Diseases

-       Magnesium in Cardiovascular Medicine

-       Magnesium in Implantology

-       Magnesium in Veterinary Medicine

-       Crazy Magnesium applications


Abstracts can be submitted via the eMail-Adress:

Furthermore, selected abstract will be invited for submission as full-papers in a special issue of “Bioactive Materials” journal (


We are looking forward to meeting you in Belle-Île-en-Mer!


On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees : 

Dr. Bérengère Luthringer-Feyerabend - Dr. Frank Feyerabend - Dr. Martin Kolisek
