This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
To advance our understanding of human health and disease, and to more quickly develop solutions to treat it, engineers, clinicians, and biologists in the musculoskeletal research community collaborate to tackle the most challenging questions in our field. Strategic application of emerging technologies will speed our progress in understanding the integrated function of the musculoskeletal system in development, at homeostasis, and in the wide range of human aging and disease. In this GRC, we hope to stimulate dialogue and collaboration among pioneering investigators who are developing new research tools and "early adopters" whose compelling research questions motivate the acceleration of musculoskeletal discovery and treatment, thus fulfilling the theme of the GRC.
