Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The Department of Medical Sciences of The Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in cooperation with the Department of Biotechnology University of Rijeka is proud to announce the 2nd edition of the “International Conference on Regenerative Orthopedics and Tissue Engineering”, to be held in Opatija, Croatia on September 20-22, 2012.
In line with the spirit of the successful first edition, that was held in July 2010, this Conference’s goal is to present the latest scientific and clinical innovations in the field of bone and cartilage regeneration, osteoporosis treatment and stem cell research and application. We also propose a new topic that aims to cover novel treatment options in rheumatology, including biological and gene therapy. Once more, the Conference will be a multidisciplinary program of research and practice, giving the opportunity to interact and share clinical and research experiences with colleagues from the orthopaedic and musculoskeletal community. Prominent domestic and international speakers will provide comprehensive, up-to-date, research-based answers to the most frequent questions that arise in this rapidly evolving field of medicine.
We would like to strongly encourage you to submit your abstracts and to attend in order to share your achievements in the fields of musculoskeletal regeneration and tissue engineering.
The Conference will take place in the unique city of Opatija that radiates with quiet elegance and sumptuous beauty. Here, where the Adriatic Sea softly kisses the shore and the romantic spirit pervades every corner, buildings that still evoke the beauty of the old aristocracy (who visited them lovingly) were erected. Even today, many years later, Opatija, like a beautiful lady, enjoys her riches and fullness of life.
Once again, on behalf of your Croatian hosts, we welcome you with the conviction that our Conference will prove to be the place to revive old and form new friendships, and with the hope that you will find it stimulating, informative and a pleasure.
Christopher H. Evans
Presidents of the Conference
General Secretary of the Conference
