  • Mechanistic and Therapeutic Insights into Skeletal Biology Learned from the Study of Rare Bone Diseases, Thursday, September 11, 2014
    Location: Hilton Americas, Houston, TX
    Description: <p>This workshop, coordinated by the National Bone Health Alliance (NBHA) in partnership with the Rare Bone Disease Patient Network and with the support of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) and the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) aims to: 1)Convene a multi-disciplinary group of experts including researchers, clinicians, and patients with rare bone diseases to advance our understanding of skeletal biology and encourage the development of novel therapies to improve outcomes for individuals with both common and rare bone diseases;<span>&nbsp; </span>2)Identify gaps in our knowledge regarding the biologic mechanisms underlying rare bone disorders and share effective research strategies in translational and therapeutic areas;<span>&nbsp; </span>3)Encourage broad participation both by holding the event the day before the ASBMR 2014 Annual Meeting and providing funding for a significant number of young investigators to attend; and 4)Disseminate the results broadly by publishing the proceedings of the program in a peer-reviewed journal.</p>

  • Craniofacial Morphogenesis and Tissue Regeneration Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, April 11, 2010 - Friday, April 16, 2010
    Location: Il Ciocco Hotel and Resort, Barga , Italy
    Description: The goal of this conference was to advance the field of craniofacial morphogenesis and regeneration and treatment of rare craniofacial diseases by communicating the most recent findings from the field. The interdisciplinary group of scientists working in basic science and translational fields encouraged cross-fertilization of ideas, experimental systems, animal models, and data sets for solving critical questions concerning craniofacial biology, ultimately leading to identification of practical strategies for treatment and prevention of a broad range of diseases affecting head structures. The conference encouraged new investigators and trainees to enter the field and to form collaborations with more established scientists. The conference also identified linkages between basic, translational, and clinical researchers and charted a plan of action for the future of the field.

  • The Third Multiple Hereditary Exostoses (MHE) Research Conference, Thursday, October 29, 2009 - Sunday, November 01, 2009
    Location: Four Points, Sheraton Boston Logan Airport, Boston, MA
    Description: This goals of this conference were to promote the exchange of the most current information regarding MHE and the collaboration and synergy among laboratories studying this disease. These goals were accomplished by bringing together world experts in the fields of orthopedics, human genetics, developmental biology, glycobiology, and related human bone diseases and providing them with a highly focused forum to cultivate new ideas and cross-discipline collaborations.
