What's New in Montréal

Montréal’s founding mother Jeanne Mance was a nurse from France who founded the Hôtel-Dieu de Montréal hospital in 1645, and the city’s dedication to advancement in the life sciences has maintained a strong presence ever since. Montréal stands at the forefront in areas like neuroscience, cardiology, oncology and cancer research, and each year major medical conferences come to the city to capture some of that spirit. This September 28-October 1, the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) holds its Annual Meeting to the Palais des congrès de Montréal, featuring the leading lights working in the bone, mineral and musculoskeletal field.

A time to share and network

Bringing together 3,000 professionals from 70 countries – making it the world’s biggest and most international meeting in bone, mineral and musculosketal research – the ASBMR Annual Meeting’s full program will present the latest findings in the field, through presentations, workshops and posters. On Saturday, the ASBMR also presents its Esteemed Awards, named after such luminaries in bone and mineral research and treatment as Adele Boskey, Frederic C. Bartter and Gideon A. Rodan.

Other highlights include this year’s symposium topic Skeletal Contributions to Joint Degeneration and Osteoarthritis, the Discovery Hall, a packed Education Program of almost 100 education sessions and Young Investigator Opportunities including events specifically for students and opportunities for travel grants and awards, bringing the new generation of researchers into the heart of the action.
