UCSF CCMBM and Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Scientific Retreat - Great Performances: Stretching the Limits of Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine

Inspired by elite performers who push the limits of what the musculoskeletal system can achieve, musculoskeletal research seeks to help everyone unleash their inner performer to live a healthy and active life. This scientific event brings together researchers from the Bay Area and beyond to discuss cutting edge research that aims to transform human health by improving musculoskeletal function across the lifespan. Researchers from the biological, engineering, imaging, and epidemiologic sciences will discuss advances in soft and mineralized skeletal tissues and muscle in health and disease.
