ABSTRACT SUBMISSION OPEN UNTIL 11:59 p.m. CST, October 15, 2017
Hosted by the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation will gather a wide variety of researchers from bench science, clinical laboratories, and clinics across the nation to present exciting and emerging evidence focused on conditions that affect bone, cartilage, muscle, and skin. Our intent is to bring these scientists together to present their work in areas related to mechanotransduction -- the what, how, and why physical, mechanical stresses to which the body is subjected -- like those generated by exercise, weight bearing, stretching or blood coursing through arteries -- have been directly linked to effective management of musculoskeletal conditions commonly seen in rehabilitation and medicine.
Comprises all scientists, clinicians, and consumers involved with musculoskeletal conditions that impact our daily lives, at home, at work, in sports, in the performing arts.
To educate one another on cutting-edge research and encourage better communication among researchers, educators, clinicians, and interested members in the community to benefit all, i.e., patients’ musculoskeletal wellbeing and performance, excellence in health care, and enhancement in research funding.
