The International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS) will hold its 2017 ICMRS-ORS Membership Meeting on Monday, March 20th, 2017 at San Diego. The meeting is organized to provide a forum for ICMRS members to exchange the information in frontiers of all musculoskeletal research, to bridge the knowledge gap between the scholars from different research fields, to promote young investigators in the field for successful career developments, and to share the successful experience in career development by senior researchers.
