The ASBMR 2018 Annual Meeting will be held in Montréal, Québec, Canada on September 28 – October 1.  For ICMRS members attending this meeting, we would like to highlight the following education-related events.

1. Emerging Investigator's Program

This special one-day program, taking place on Friday, September 28, provides a cohesive agenda of popular Annual Meeting sessions with increased opportunities for networking with, and mentorship from, respected leaders within the bone sciences field. As Dr. Mike Evans, ASBMR President said, “There is no better way for a trainee to kick-start their career than by learning from and networking with the best and brightest within our field at the premier meeting in bone and mineral metabolism.”  To register, please visit the 2018 ASBMR Annual Meeting Registration Site or the Registration counter in Montréal.
