5th Musculoskeletal Repair and Regeneration Symposium

SYMPOSIUM MISSION 

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Musculoskeletal Repair and Regeneration Symposium seeks to expand the knowledge base within the field, and to foster inspiration, collaboration and networking between researchers throughout the region. This year's meeting will emphasize recent advances in translational research in two areas: 

• Mechanisms and development of novel therapeutics for musculoskeletal disorders and diseases
• Stem cell, tissue repair, degeneration, and regeneration  

 

CONFERENCE LOCATION AND DATE  

October 13, 2016
LeFrak Auditorium (Room 151)
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
1301 Morris Park Ave. Bronx, NY 10461

STATEMENT OF NEED  

Damage to musculoskeletal tissues is a significant cause of morbidity and increased mortality, and is a magnifier of mortality in other clinical diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. The innate repair capacities are limited for articular cartilage, tendon, and extensive bone defects. In addition, current treatments for the repair of injured musculoskeletal tissue are not sufficient to restore the functionality of the original tissue. These daunting challenges present a desperate need for a better understanding of musculoskeletal biology and emphasize the importance of discovering novel repair and regeneration strategies that can be translated to clinical use.

GOALS  

This program will address current issues in musculoskeletal repair and regeneration, and disease treatment. Discussions will focus on up-to-date laboratory discoveries and the potential impact of these findings on patient treatment and management in the future.
