8th Annual Mellanby Centre Research Day

8th Annual Mellanby Centre Research Day

The 8th Annual Mellanby Centre Research Day will be held on Friday 1 December 2017 at the Edge, Endcliffe Village, The University of Sheffield.

The aim of our meeting is to communicate novel & innovative musculoskeletal research within our group and, more importantly, with our friends and collaborators from other research institutions and industry, and with other University colleagues. We also aim to showcase our research profile to the broader public and research funders.
Our musculoskeletal research interests span skeletal diseases of childhood to the elderly, and cover both benign and malignant bone disease. Our clinical research covers areas of metabolic bone diseases including osteoporosis, childhood bone diseases, tumour-induced bone diseases. The Mellanby Centre is a partner with the AR-UK/MRC Centre for Integrated Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and with Insigneo, Europe’s largest centre for in silico medicine.
