Cocoon Biotech has been invited to participate in the 2015 Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) World Congress to be held in Seattle, Washington from April 30 to May 3, 2015. The OARSI Congress is an annual forum for anyone involved in osteoarthritis research or treatment, and it brings together a wide variety of scientists, health professionals and policy makers for workshops, plenary sessions and mentorship. The interdisciplinary nature of the congress provides many opportunities for networking and allows both young researchers and experts to share their ideas and progress. This year, some of the topics to be discussed are joint development, genetic risks for OA, and pain mechanisms behind OA. Corporate sponsors of the congress include Abbvie, Bioiberica, and EMD Serono.
Team members from Cocoon will be presenting a poster on Intra-Articular Augmentation of Lubrication with Silk Microspheres on Friday May 1st and Saturday May 2nd. They will also have a chance to speak with clinical experts and research leaders at mentorship sessions and breakfast workshops.
