Musculoskeletal System Symposium 2020

When: 16/07/2020 - 18/07/2020
Where: Stuttgart - Germany

Most research about the musculoskeletal system focuses on one or the other component of the musculoskeletal system, e.g., muscles, bones, or the neuromuscular recruitment, but hardly ever on the interplay between its components. This, however, is essential to improve our understanding of the musculoskeletal system as a whole. The Musculoskeletal System Symposium aims to bring together young and renowned international researchers in the field of musculoskeletal research, exchange ideas, and identify new synergies between the fields to enhance our understanding of the musculoskeletal system. The symposium will be held from July 16 - 18, 2020 at the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart.
