    Co-sponsored by the International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS), Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), the University of Hong Kong Shenzhen Hospital, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and South China Biomedical Materials (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., the 4th International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Conference (ICMRC-2019) was held at SUSTech, Shenzhen, China, August 9-12, 2019. The theme of this conference is “Strengthening basic research, Promoting scientific and technological innovation, and Serving the development of Greater Bay Area”. Nearly 700 delegates from all over the world participated in the conference.

    The opening ceremony was presided over by Professor Guozhi Xiao, Co-Chairman of the Conference, Dean of Zhicheng College of SUSTech and Director of ICMRS Collaborating Research Center. Professor Xiao first expressed his warm welcome to the experts from all over the world who have long supported the international Chinese orthopaedic research. He said that this conference provided an important platform for a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of the world's medical field. It will play an important role in enhancing academic exchanges, expanding academic horizons, understanding the dynamics of academic circles, and promoting scientific and technological innovation. At the same time, it has effectively created a "one belt, one road" health cooperation platform and broadened the health attributes of the construction and development of Greater Bay Area. He hoped that SUSTech would be able to enhance communication through this platform, seize opportunities and promote cooperation, and make positive contributions to the development of the Greater Bay Area.

    Following that, Professor Changsheng Liu, the academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and President of Shanghai University, Professor Kunzheng Wang, President-elect of the Chinese Orthopedic Association and Director of the Joint Surgery Center of Xi'an Jiaotong University, and Professor Dazhi Yang, Director of Spinal Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of SUSTech, delivered opening remarks and congratulate the starting of ICMRC-2019. Finally, Professor Tingting Tang, President of ICMRS, briefly introduced the history and current status of the society as well as previous ICMRCs. On behalf of the society, he thanked all guests and representatives, sponsors, scientific and organizing committees of the conference for their support to the congress.

    More than 90 invited speakers and distinguished scholars attended ICMRC-2019, including Professor Yixian Qin of Stony Brook University, Chair of Board of Directors, ICMRS, Prof. Ling Qin of University of Pennsylvania, President-elect of ICMRS, Professor William W. Lu of the University of Hong Kong, Professor Ling Qin of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor X. Edward Guo of Columbia University and Professor Cao Xu of Johns Hopkins University, Professor James H-C. Wang of University of Pittsburgh, Professor Yongjun Wang of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Dou Dou of National Natural Science Foundation of China, Professor Renny Franceschi and Professor Peter Ma of University of Michigan, Professor Martin Lotz of Scripps Institute, Professor Francis Lee of Yale University, Professor Mattew Greenblatt of Weill Cornell Medical College, and Professor Motomi Enomoto-Iwamoto of University of Maryland.

    During ICMRC-2019, the scholars discussed the important problems faced by orthopaedic diagnosis and treatment and the research direction of orthopaedic related diseases, exchanged their experiences in clinical, basic and translational research of orthopaedics, and provided new ideas for the future development of orthopaedics. The conference included three basic science venues and one clinical venue. The participants discussed the molecular mechanism of skeletal diseases, biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue regeneration, transformational medicine, targeted therapy, skeletal development and aging, joint biology, musculoskeletal diseases and treatment, and the application of new clinical technologies. The conference also conducted competition for Young Investigator Best Paper Awards. A total of 14 oral awards and 14 poster awards were selected (2 first prizes, 4 second prizes and 8 third prizes for each category).

    ICMRC-2019 is another successful international Chinese orthopaedic research event held by ICMRS, following the previous ICMRCs in Suzhou in 2013, Changsha in 2015 and Shihezi in 2017, respectively. The continuous and rapid growth of abstract submissions and registered participants in this series of conferences reflects the continuous expansion of the multidisciplinary team of orthopaedic research in China, and the increasing academic impact of ICMRS. The conference, held at the SUSTech, also demonstrates the school's pragmatic and realistic academic style, opens up new opportunities for the school's foreign cooperation, and will play a positive role in promoting talent introduction and academic influence. Next, ICMRS, as an international platform, will help promote health development of the Greater Bay Area.

    The 2019 annual ICMRS-ORS Membership Meeting was held in Austin on February 2nd, 2019. We have a total of 90 attendees with guests from NIH and JOR. To enhance the social bonding among our members and to better nurture our young investigators, this meeting continue last year’s format of roundtable discussions, by asking the attendees to choose their interested topic and stay at the corresponded table during the entire meeting.

    The meeting started with a President’s Report presented by Dr. Ling Qin, President-elect and Chair of Program Committee, on behalf of current President Dr. Tingting Tang. This report summarizes the progress of our society during Dr. Tang’s presidency in the past one and half years, focusing on committees, membership, communication, education, development in China, and sponsored meetings. New committees have been established to increase the regional diversity of our society and enhance the scientific exchange among our members. They include Australia and Asean Development Committee, Europe Develop Committee, and Scientific Committees, which are subdivided into Bone and Joint Biology, Stem Cells and Regeneration, Biomechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Biomaterial and Translational Research. Dr. Qin also announced that our society’s biennial meeting, the 4th International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Conference will be held in Shenzhen, China, on August 9-12, this year and she encouraged our society members to submit abstracts and attend this meeting.

    Following this, Dr. Stuart Goodman from Journal of Orthopaedic Research gave a talk about new developments of JOR and the journal’s outreach to China.

    This meeting was then highlighted by the announcement of Webster Jee Young Investigator Awardees by Dr. Chuanju Liu: Jiahui Hang from Brown University, Yulong Wei from the University of Pennsylvania, and Wenguang Liu from Xi’an Jiaotong University. Each awardee gave a brief introduction about their outstanding research. They were presented with an award plaque and a cash prize of $500 each. 

    The major part of this meeting is a 1-hour panel discussion of Promoting Research Integrity with panelists Drs. Yi-Xian Qin, James Wang, Ed Guo, and Stuart Goodman and Chaired by Dr. Jean Jiang. At the school Dean and department Chair levels, those panelists provided their perception and interpretation about research integrity, ethics, intellectual property, and conflicts of interest/disclosure. Questions from audience regarding specific cases further enhanced this discussion.

    At the end, special thanks go to volunteers from our society who helped to organize this membership meeting: Dr. Wei Yao from UC Davis, Dr. Neil Dong from University of Texas, Dr. Sherry Liu from University of Pennsylvania, and abstract reviewers for Webster Jee Young Investigator Award.

    Dear ICMRS Members:

    As you may know, the ASBMR established a mentorship program (http://www.asbmr.org/about/detail.aspx?cid=a386c383-dd5b-4579-8aa5-8a436a36ded6)  where ASMBR members are willing to share significant scientific experiences and professional expertise with other members.  As suggested by the Education Committee, the ICMRS leadership highly encourages the senior members of ICMRS to sign up to serve as mentors, and the junior members of our society to register to take advantage of the expertise the more senior members may offer.  This will significantly increase the impact and visibility of our society and contribute to the education of future young scientists in the society and the field.
