Description

UCSF CCMBM and Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Scientific Retreat - Unleashing your Inner Athlete: Accelerating MSK Healing through Discovery



Inspired by elite athletes who push the limits of what the musculoskeletal system can achieve, musculoskeletal research seeks to help everyone unleash the inner athlete to live a healthy and active life. This scientific event brings together researchers from the Bay Area and beyond to discuss cutting edge research that aims to transform human health by improving musculoskeletal function across the lifespan. Researchers from the biological, engineering, imaging, and epidemiologic sciences will discuss advances in soft and mineralized skeletal tissues and muscle in health and disease.

Please join us for this special two-day retreat sponsored by the NIH P30 Core Center for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (CCMBM) and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery for all musculoskeletal researchers. Check online for the full agenda and event updates.
