Symposium on "Muscle-Bone Deficits in Chronic Neuromuscular Conditions" June 15th 2017
Thursday 15th June 2017
Teaching & Learning Centre Lecture Theatre
Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus
It is our great pleasure to invite you to Glasgow for this Symposium on “Muscle-Bone Deficits In Chronic Neuromuscular Conditions”. The symposium will take place on Thursday 15th June 2017 at the Teaching and Learning Centre, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
This symposium is organized in collaboration with the Scottish Muscle Network, John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre at the University of Newcastle, Muscular Dystrophy UK, Action Duchenne and the Office for Rare Conditions in Glasgow. We are particularly delighted to have the support of Action Duchenne and Muscular Dystrophy UK.
This symposium is an educational forum with a panel of experts in the neuromuscular and bone fields, aiming to address four main aspects
1) Glucocorticoid and muscle deficits on skeletal development
2) Novel methods of assessment of muscle and bone
3) Evaluation and management of skeletal fragility in neuromuscular conditions
4) New avenues for improving muscle disease and bone
This symposium will also be a forum for clinicians (medical and allied health), translational and basic researchers from a wide range of background to exchange ideas on the muscle bone inter-relationship in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and the impact on osteoporosis in these boys. The Developmental Endocrinology Research Group has a longstanding research interest in osteoporosis in young people due to an underlying chronic medical condition and has a strong focus in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
We look forward to welcoming you in Glasgow in June 2017!!
