Description

The International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS) will hold its 2016 ICMRS-ASBMR Membership Meeting on Friday, September 16th, 2016 at the Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta. The meeting is organized to provide a forum for ICMRS members to exchange information from all musculoskeletal research frontiers, to bridge the knowledge gap between the scholars from different research fields, to promote young investigators in the field toward successful career development, and to promote sharing the success stories of senior researchers toward career development. To recognize the achievement of young ICMRS members, three Webster Jee Young Investigator Awards will be given at the meeting. The winners will be announced during the membership meeting and each awardee will receive an award certificate/plaque and a $500 check.
