We’re honored and excited to present our research at the 2016 OARSI meeting on osteoarthritis in Amsterdam later this week!
Our contributions to this meeting include a talk on joint responses to biomechanical impacts, and how biological adaptation to such impacts might help initiate osteoarthritis. We also have a poster in collaboration with Lin Han’s group at Drexel, showing that loss of cartilage integrity after ACL rupture injury is in part mediated by cellular responses to the injury, rather than the the mechanical effects of the impact itself.
OARSI is the premier international organization for scientists and health care professionals focused on the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis through the promotion and presentation of research, education and the worldwide dissemination of new knowledge. – See more here:
Beyond the great mission statement quoted, this is an organization which has impressed me personally with its vision, focus, and effectiveness. And the way they include a local icon into their meeting logo – this year it’s a windmill.
