Event description

Description


Researchers from the University of Leeds will be presenting the latest research from our EPSRC Programme Grant, alongside invited keynote speakers from other academic and clinical centres in Europe and the USA.

The event will take place at Weetwood Hall and the agenda is as below. There is free parking onsite and regular bus links to Leeds city centre. Registration is free and includes a networking lunch.

Although the focus will be on the knee, the meeting will be of interest to those involved in musculoskeletal devices and preclinical testing.
