Symposium Title
Orthopaedic Research: from Mechanism to Mechanics 

Approximately 100 individuals attended the ORS Ambassadors Symposia: Southern California Regional Symposium held on Monday, September 25, 2017 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. There were 5 short podium presentations by junior investigators and over 30 posters were presented. 

The goal of the symposium was to allow exposure of orthopaedic research and facilitate collaborations amongst investigators at the regional level. The program was very diverse and included speakers representing basic, translational, and clinical science from multiple institutions around the region.
