The Indiana Center for Musculoskeletal Health (ICMH) will host a meeting “Bone and Muscle Interactions: The Mechanical and Beyond” in August 2019 to address the research question: “What is the evidence that muscle and bone interact beyond the mechanical and how can this new information lead to potential treatments for musculoskeletal disease?”

The goal of this meeting is to bring together national and international leaders in bone, muscle, and bone-muscle interactions to initiate and promote collaborative studies and stimulate ideas to trigger new strategies for preventing and treating musculoskeletal disease.

Conference sessions will center on bone-muscle interactions in aging, cancer, energetics and metabolism, orthopedics, nutrition, pediatric and adult genetic musculoskeletal disease, and soluble factors/exercise released mediators of muscle-bone interactions. The goal of this meeting is to trigger new strategies for preventing and treating musculoskeletal disease through the promotion of new collaborations and partnerships between researchers.
