Founded in August 1994 at Sun Valley, Idaho, the International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS, renamed from the International Chinese Hard Tissue Society, known as ICHTS) is a non-profit professional organization, striving to facilitate the exchange of ideas and to promote collaboration among scientists in the fields of musculoskeletal research.
The mission of the ICMRS is to promote scientific and professional excellence and to enhance communication among scientists with Chinese and other national heritages in the field of musculoskeletal research and related areas. ICMRS supports collaborations, networking and research exchange, and career development among our members through sponsoring and organizing scientific conferences, workshops, and academic events. Through these joint and continuous efforts, our ultimate goal is to promote new discoveries and advance basic, translational, and clinical research, and to provide quality care of musculoskeletal disorders worldwide.
ICMRS does not, and will not have any political affiliation with any specific nation or region. As a world-wide organization, ICMRS is open to all professionals and trainees in all areas of musculoskeletal and related research or clinical practice.
