The Center for Skeletal Research, funded by a NIAMS P30 grant, is happy to announce its fourth annual Research Symposium. The goal is to bring together the Boston/New England bone research community for an exciting afternoon of scientific exchange. This year we will again feature talks by two prominent leaders of the field, Brendan Lee from Baylor College of Medicine and Dolores Shoback from UCSF and the San Francisco VA Medical Center. Dr. Shoback will also host a special informal session about careers for young investigators. We will also be expanding the poster session and will again offer prizes for the highest ranked posters. We ask that you register for the meeting so we can get a good sense of the number of attendees in advance and because seating is limited.
Free, but advanced registration recommended due to limited seating. Online registration deadline: June 8 at 5pm
Please plan to arrive at the Registration Desk at least 15 minutes before the start of the symposium to ensure that you have adequate time to pick-up your materials. Upon check-in you will receive a packet that includes a printed conference schedule, your name tag, Authors and titles of abstracts for the Poster Session, and an evaluation form.
