Description

This meeting aims to unite clinicians and researchers on a common platform to investigate the nature and causes of the degenerating spine and the intervertebral discs and its consequences for low back pain.

Translational research, where basic science is targeted to find its way back to the patient’s bed site, has become popular and is the major focus of this meeting.
