The Cambridge Musculoskeletal Sciences Network is pleased to report strong support for their inaugural seminar event entitled An overview of MSK imaging research in Cambridge held on 13 January 2016 in the Department of Radiology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. There were over 40 attendees to hear engaging talks from four of our network members on musculoskeletal imaging topics ranging from clinical research, MR physics applications, PET development, and image analysis. It was particularly pleasing to have such diverse attendance from across Cambridge again, following on from the Network opening event in June 2015. We are now planning for future seminars, so please contact Alison Sawalhi with ideas and offers to host.

14th- 16th December Magdelene College, University of Cambridge,
From steel to stem cells – bone and joint repair and regeneration – Thursday 11th November 2015 6-8pm
Professor McCaskie, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery & Research Director Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery
In his lecture, Andrew examines the next key advances in orthopaedic surgery by repairing or regenerating bone and joint tissues – often called tissue engineering or regenerative medicine. He will explore the progression from familiar materials currently used in joint replacement e.g. steel and plastic, towards advanced materials, molecules and cells that encourage repair in the body.
This lecture will also indicate how a bench to bedside research programme, building up clinical evidence, is key to successful adoption into healthcare.
Venue: The Martin Cohen Lecture Theatre, Li Ka Shing Centre, Cambridge Research Institute, Robinson Way, Cambridge, CB2 0RE
