The International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS) will hold its 2018 ICMRS-ORS Membership Meeting at New Orleans, LA, USA on Saturday, March 10th, 2018. The meeting is organized to provide a forum for ICMRS members to exchange the information in all frontiers of musculoskeletal research to bridge the knowledge gap between the scholars from different research fields. To recognize the achievement of young ICMRS members, three Webster Jee Young Investigator Awards will be presented to the winners at the meeting. The winners will be announced during the membership meeting and each awardee will receive an award certificate/plaque and a cash award of $500.
