The AAOS/ORS Bone Quality and Fracture Prevention Research Symposium was held in Rosemont last week. The symposium is chaired by Adele Boskey, PhD; Eve Donnelly, PhD, and Joseph Lane, MD. The goals of the 2013 symposium are to provide orthopaedic clinicians and scientists with state-of-the art information about bone quality as it relates to the orthopaedic clinician, including the contribution of bone quality to skeletal integrity, noninvasive assessment of bone quality, and pharmacologic and surgical management of patients with impaired bone quality.
This year, the organizers chose to increase the presence of Young Investigators. Twelve Young Investigators were chosen to participate in the symposium, which included a poster presentation. ORS members Allison Altman, PhD, Kenneth Kozloff, PhD and Zeynep Seref-Ferlengez, MS were among the Young Investigators selected to participate.
