There are limited places available on this unique, vibrant workshop which takes place in an intimate setting with 100-150 attendees; abstract submission is strongly encouraged. State-of-the-art presentations in bone biology and pathology: six senior investigators presenting keynote lectures and lots of opportunity to present and discuss your own science with your peers and leaders in the field.

The main objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Discuss science in progress with peers and a few senior scientists
  • Network with other scientists with similar interests and complementary expertise
  • Showcase unpublished data to generate discussion and constructive feedback

The Herbert Fleisch Workshop is designed to bring together excellent international investigators and young and mid-career scientists working in bone and cartilage research, for vigorous data discussion and networking. Students, postdocs, and early stage PIs are therefore particularly encouraged to submit an abstract. All aspects of bone biology, basic and applied, are welcomed. As guidance, the scientific content of the meeting including submitted abstracts is expected to include the following aspects of skeletal health and disease:
• Senescence of bone cells
• Mechanosensing and bone
• Skeletal stem and progenitor cells
• Microbiome and bone
• Regulation of osteoclast differentiation
• Osteo-anabolic research and osteoblast biology
• Osteocytes
• Cancer and bone
• Skeletal development and growth
• Human and mouse genetics of skeletal diseases
• Integrative physiology
• Bone marrow environment, including marrow adiposity, skeletal vascularization, and hematopoietic niches
• Fracture repair and skeletal tissue regeneration

There will be both oral and poster presentations at the meeting, with much emphasis on discussion of posters, including active participation of the invited senior scientists. Those selected for oral presentations must bring a poster about their work to ensure discussion throughout the meeting.
All are welcome as participants, with priority in programming given to young investigators.
