Dear Colleagues, It is a great pleasure to invite you to the ECTS 2019, the 46th annual meeting of the European Calcified Tissue Society. ECTS 2019 will take place from 11-14 May 2019 in Budapest, Hungary, with pre-congress day on 10 May 2019.
ECTS serves as a forum for researchers and clinicians working in the musculoskeletal field to discover and discuss the latest advances and controversies in research and in the daily care of patients. A special highlight this year will be the 50th year anniversary of bisphosphonates. Everyone in the field knows their history and impact on clinical medicine, but what will be their future? A forward looking session will review future developments.
Also new this year, the meeting will include relevant hot clinical sessions to help managing patients going along the newest knowledge in the field.
This programme will give the opportunity to new investigators to network, share common interests, receiving mentoring advices and start building their own collaborative projects at an international level. Collaboration will also be highlighted in several joint sessions with international bone societies: ASBMR and our partners from China, Japan and Korea.
Whether you are a young investigator, clinician, basic scientist, nurse or allied health professional, industry representative, you will be exposed to the latest topics in our field. Take part in this exciting meeting and stay tuned for more information coming soon. We look forward to welcoming you in Budapest.
Anna Teti, SPC Chair.
