The Symposium will be chaired by Gerard Karsenty, Professor and Chair, Genetics & Development, Columbia University MC one of the world's leading scientists from the bone biology arena. The Symposium will feature four hours of lectures by invited key opinion leaders, held in an informal setting to encourage discussion and stimulating interaction. Most importantly, the Symposium will provide an outstanding opportunity for young investigators to showcase their latest research in over eight hours of oral presentations, selected from the highest ranked abstracts. In order to support the travel costs of researchers, IOF and ESCEO will award 500 Euro travel grants to the scientists selected for oral presentations.
Pure science no distractions:
Scientists engaged in pre-clinical research in osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and related metabolic bone diseases are invited to take this opportunity to present and discuss their latest research findings with other investigators and key opinion leaders. The organizers intend to create a uniquely intimate, stimulating environment focused purely on science with no exhibitions or other distractions.
Registrants to the 1st Pre-Clinical Symposium may opt to attend the ECCEO11-IOF from March 23-26, 2011 at a significantly reduced registration rate.
