About the Meeting

We invite you to join us for the first official ORS ISFR meeting. Organizers from the Bone Regeneration RIG that has taken place at the ORS Annual Meeting have helped to develop the programming for this important section meeting.  Participants will help set the course for the future of our field, and will have the opportunity to network with recognized experts.  Programming will include a session for junior investigators as well as a presentation from senior investigators, “Unmet clinical needs and future research directions in fracture healing.”

Meeting Outcomes

  • Stimulate Networking and Collaboration in Fracture Healing
  • Determine Consensus Topic for Next ISFR Meeting
  • Produce Journal of Orthopaedic Research Review from Section Meeting – Lead Author: Ralph Marcucio, PhD, ORS ISFR Secretary
  • Stimulate discussion on unmet needs and directions in fracture healing through senior leaders in field
