The Center for Skeletal Research, funded by a NIAMS P30 grant, is happy to announce its third annual Research Symposium. The goal is to bring together the Boston bone research community for an exciting afternoon of scientific exchange. This year we will again feature talks by two talented leaders of the field from outside the Center (Sean Morrison from U Texas Southwestern) and Elizabeth Shane (Columbia U). Dr. Shane 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. The poster session was a success last year and we hope that this year it will be bigger and better. This is, an occasion for informal interchange about new research ideas. 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.
