Preliminary Scientific Programme

Preliminary Scientific Programme

The scientific program reflects the dynamic nature cartilage injury and repair, the growing importance of the ICRS as a preeminent organization and the tremendous efforts of its members in both basic scientific and clinical endeavors. The program builds on the overwhelming popularity and success of previous ICRS meetings and reflects our desire for scientists and clinicians to collaborate and share ideas.
