It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 2013 joint meeting of the Bone Research Society and the British Orthopaedic Research Society in Oxford.

This is the 4th combined meeting of the two societies. We anticipate that the science presented at the meeting will be enlightening, informative and stimulating for both clinical and non-clinical scientists. Our keynote speakers will be of international standing and will come from a range of disciplines reflecting the interests of both societies. A key component of the meeting will be ample opportunity for informal discussion and poster viewing.

For clinicians, there will be updates on new treatments, clinical cases and the latest research on the pathogenesis of osteoporosis, as well as a short series of clinical cases. The meeting is fully approved for CPD by the Royal College of Physicians.

A key component of the meeting will be the extensive opportunities for informal discussion and for poster viewing, and we warmly invite you to submit your abstracts for both oral and poster presentation.

Of course Oxford itself needs no introduction, and we are looking forward to welcoming you to what is one of the UK’s most historic and beautiful cities. Oxford is well served by road and rail connections, and for those travelling from further afield Heathrow and other airports are nearby. The conference venue is in the centre of town and 2 minutes’ walk from accommodation at Queen’s and Merton Colleges.

We hope that you will come and join us for what promises to be a stimulating and informative meeting between our two societies and we look forward to welcoming you in Oxford.

Best wishes
