GORDON CONFERENCE--BIOENGINEERING &ORTHOPEDIC SCIENCES

Description

We are requesting partial support for the Eighth Gordon Research
Conference on Bioengineering and Orthopaedic Science to be held July 31-
August 5, 1994 at Proctor Academy, Andover, New Hampshire. This
conference, held alternate years, covers a broad range of disciplines in
the important and growing field of musculoskeletal research. It has
consistently attracted more applicants than can be accommodated and the
1992 conference was attended by registrants from many disciplines, many
countries, and many stages in their careers. In addition, the conference
has consistently included individuals from industrial, academic basic
science and clinical backgrounds. The enthusiastic reviews and burgeoning
interest strongly endorse the continuation of this conference on cutting-
edge topics in orthopaedic research. The proposed inter-disciplinary program will focus on preeminent research
advances in areas of interest to engineers, biologists, biochemists and
orthopaedic scientists in general. The program has been formulated to
stimulate broad interest, lively discussion and inter-disciplinary
exchange of ideas in the Gordon Conference format. The meeting will
consist of: 1) nine sessions of presentations and discussions, 2) poster
sessions Tuesday through Thursday (early and late evenings) to which all
attendees are encouraged to contribute work, and 3) free time to encourage
open discussion and exchange of ideas between individuals. Specific topics of focus include work at the forefront of growth factor
research, cell response to mechanical stimuli, the biology and mechanics
of bone, cartilage, tendon and muscle function, therapeutic application of
recent advances, etc., as detailed in the draft Conference Program.
