Orthopedic Research Symposium & D’Ambrosia Diversity Lectureship

 

We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual CU Orthopedic Research Symposium and D’Ambrosia Diversity Lectureship, scheduled for Wednesday, November 11, 2020.  This virtual event will include plenary lectures, pre- and post-doctoral trainee presentations, and two poster sessions supporting video-conference style break-out rooms for each poster presenter.  Pre- and post-doctoral trainee awards recognizing the best research will be presented. We aim to grow from last year’s 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. Kristy Weber will anchor the event as the D’Ambrosia Diversity Keynote Lecturer.  Dr. Weber is the Vice Chair of Faculty Affairs and Chief of Oncology in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Penn Medicine. She also serves as the Director of the Sarcoma Program at the Abramson Cancer Center there. Dr. Weber is the immediate past president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the first woman to hold this role in the Academy’s 87-year history.
