We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual CU Orthopedic Research Symposium and D’Ambrosia Diversity Lectureship, scheduled for Wednesday, November 10, 2021. This event will include plenary lectures, pre- and post-doctoral trainee presentations, and two poster sessions. Pre- and post-doctoral trainee awards recognizing the best research will be presented. We aim to grow from the inaugural event, which welcomed more than 200 attendees and 100 posters. Additionally, it featured top science from The University of Colorado Department of Orthopedics, five other departments in the CU system, and other universities along with the front range including CSU, Colorado School of the Mines, University of Northern Colorado, and the University of New Mexico.
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Valerae Lewis will anchor the event as the D’Ambrosia Diversity Keynote Lecturer. She completed her Orthopaedic training at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program in Boston, MA and her fellowship in Musculoskeletal Oncology at the University of Chicago. The first African American woman to be awarded the MD Anderson Faculty Achievement Award in Patient Care, she is now the Chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Oncology at MD Anderson.
We are also excited to announce that our Scientific Keynote Speaker will be Casey Greene, PhD. Dr. Greene is a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and serves as the Director of the Center for Health Artificial Intelligence at Anschutz. His lab develops algorithms that integrate individual data sets to help model and understand complex biological systems.
Lastly, trainees and investigators new to submitting grants to the NIH should plan to attend our NIH Grants Workshop, led by Chuck Washabaugh PhD from NIAMS, just prior to the morning session.
Registration is open and free for all attendees. The abstract submission deadline is August 19th, 2021.
