The 28th annual scientific meeting of the ANZBMS will be held in Queenstown from the 2nd to the 5th of September 2018. Chaired by Rachel Davey and Rory Clifton Bligh, together with members David Findlay, Jill Cornish, Tim Cundy, Jackie Centre and Christina Vrahnas, the POC have put together a varied program of cutting-edge science that will appeal to both clinician and basic scientists in the musculoskeletal field.
Topics to be presented by our invited speakers from France, the USA, Australia and New Zealand include bone and vascular biology, osteoarthritis, fracture healing and 3D printing, exercise, nutrition and sarcopenia, designing the skeleton, bone cell biology, as well as an update on anabolic and anti-resorptive therapies. Our scientific program also includes basic and clinical abstract presentations, young investigator awards and an interactive poster tour session.
The Early Career Investigator Committee will be hosting a ‘Building your research profile” symposium and an evening networking event. There will be ample time in the scientific program for networking and discussion including a free afternoon allowing delegates to make the most of our beautiful location, with the local organising committee organising a trip to one of Queenstown’s nearby ski slopes.
The depth and breadth of the scientific program, together with Queenstown’s breath taking scenery, ensures for a vibrant and valuable meeting for all attendees.
