Hosted by the Arthritis Foundation, and attended by the world’s leading osteoarthritis authorities, the 5th Segal North American Osteoarthritis Workshop (SNOW V) will be held October 26-28 in Chicago.
Arthritis researchers from North America and Europe will present new osteoarthritis research that could lead to better ways to detect, treat, prevent and cure osteoarthritis (OA). The title of this year’s workshop is “The Role of Joint Mechanics and Biology in Osteoarthritis: Pathogenesis and Implications for New Interventions.” The scientists will focus on the joint as an organ and OA as a disease process, not just a side-effect of ageing.
The following sessions will be presented:
- The Joint as an Organ
- Assessing the Functional Capacity and Disease Risk of the Joint
- Disease Mechanisms That Impact the Joint
- Scientific Discoveries Supporting the Joint as an Organ
- The Path to an Intervention
Research into the underlying causes of arthritis has been a high priority of the Arthritis Foundation over the past six decades. During that time, the Foundation has funded more than $450 million in research grants to thousands of scientists, resulting in better diagnostic tools, a greater understanding of the genetics involved in disease development, and the discovery of new treatments.
