Online-Congress: Connective Tissues in Sports Medicine

Due to the actual international COVID 19–situation and the current hygienic restrictions, CONNECT 2021 will be held as an Online-Congress. After two successful congresses at the University of Ulm, the third CONNECT congress will be hosted by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) on  March 26-27, 2021.

Physical training not only strengthens the cardiovascular system, but also the musculoskeletal system. While skeletal muscles are intimately related to connective tissues, it is the fibrous connective tissue components, which often suffer pathology from athletic overload. Across many biological fields, including sports medicine, new research is highlighting the important role connective tissues play in health, well-being and disease.

The 3rd CONNECT Congress at TUM, draws research across a number of biological fields to focus on „Connective Tissues in Sports Medicine“. It explores emerging research on the role of fascia from a clinical, molecular and biomechanical standpoint, to strengthen the exchange and dialogue between all research fields. Keynote-Presenter will be Prof. Daniel E. Lieberman, Harvard University, USA.

The Congress aims to connect scientists, sports medicine practitioners, physicians, therapists, coaches and sports administrators, to translate the latest scientific results findings into athletic and therapeutic practice.
