8. March 2019 - 9. March 2019Public
The significance of muscular atrophy and weakness is rising sharply within the field of medicine. Lack of movement and exercise often contributes to their emergence, but to date, there is no specialist platform on which to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of immobilisation-induced muscular disorders. This event therefore aims to bring together clinicians and researchers and encourage them to work within a common network.
Kindly submit scientific posters and brief talks by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for entries is November 15, 2018.
For participation, please register here until December 1, 2018.
