Paolo Palacio-Mancheno, Rose Long and Olivia Torre of the Iatridis lab attended the Musculoskeletal Biology & Bioengineering Gordon Research Conference and Seminar at the Proctor Academy in Andover, NH August 7-12, 2016. The theme of the 2016 GRC was “Stepping Across Disciplines to Spur Innovation in Musculoskeletal Biology and Bioengineering” as the goal of the conference was to bring together leaders in the field of musculoskeletal biology and bioengineering to foster new scientific interactions across the field.
During the week long conference, Dr. James Iatridis presented a keynote lecture entitled “Injury, Inflammation, and Altered Mechanotransduction in the Intervertebral Disc” and Rose Long presented a seminar entitled “Induction of Cd146+ Phenotype by Tgfb1 from Human Annulus Fibrosis Cells for Annulus Repair”. In addition, both Paolo Palacio-Mencheno and Olivia Torre presented their posters “Hyperosmolar Conditions Induce Notochordal Cell Maturation and Matrix Production with Aquaporin3 Upregulation in Nucleus Pulposus” and “Hyperosmolar Conditions Induce Notochordal Cell Maturation and Matrix Production with Aquaporin3 Upregulation in Nucleus Pulposus”, respectively.
