The Bone and Tooth Society annual meeting for 2002 will be held in Cardiff – one of Europe’s youngest capitals, and largely a creation of the 19th and 20th centuries when it became the busiest coal-exporting port in the world. The meeting will be held in the City Hall, part of the neo-Classical Civic Centre which is an architecturally magnificent collection of white stoned buildings set in parklands, but close to the centre of the city. There will be three plenary guest lectures, as well as symposia on:

  • Collagen disorders
  • Current versus future therapies
  • Models for studying skeletal function
  • Growth hormone and bone

In addition, there will be the usual opportunity for presentations by members. The annual dinner will have a Welsh flavour and will be in the new Millennium Stadium which dominates the city centre skyline.

So, come along and help make it a successful meeting, and sample the hospitality and "croeso" in our Capital City.
