Seventh International Bone Fluid Flow Workshop:
Translational Bone Fluid Flow
Tuesday/Wednesday September 20-21, 2005
City University of New York Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY

Description
The Seventh International Bone Fluid Flow Workshop will focus on the
role of fluid flow in bone physiology and its translation to clinical
practice. Topics include bone tissue engineering, cellular and
molecular response to bone fluid flow, and imaging and experimental
approaches to study and measure bone fluid flow. The presentation
program will include invited 30-minute lectures and selected
10-minute oral presentations of submitted abstracts, ample time for
discussion, a poster session, and social functions to promote
informal scientific interaction. A major aim of this workshop is to
provide an informal atmosphere to foster discussion and the exchange
of new ideas, theories, techniques, and collaborations among an
expected 50 to 80 participants.

The Workshop will begin on Tuesday evening with a wine-and-cheese
get-together at a Brooklyn location with an impressive view of the
East River and lower Manhattan and conclude with an all-day
presentation session on Wednesday at the City University of New York
Graduate Center (for directions, go to
http://bonenet.net/cunyGC.html).

At the conclusion of the Wednesday presentation session, participants
are encouraged to join our "restaurant caravan." Dr. Jonathan
Kaufman, CEO and President of CyberLogic, Inc., has kindly agreed to
consult with participants about their dining choices and, if
requested, arrange small groups who will be guided to diverse New
York restaurants by native New Yorkers. As everyone will cover the
cost of their own dinner, the restaurants chosen will include both
reasonably priced as well as highly rated ones-all with good food.

Student Abstract Submission
Students wishing to present original research related to the theme of
the Workshop may submit abstracts until the program is full. New
ideas and new directions in the study of the relationship between
bone fluid flow and mechanosensation in bone are especially welcome.
Abstract format: one 8-1/2 x 11-inch page, with a minimum of one-inch
margins on all sides; include title, author(s), affiliation(s),
Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion. Figures (optional) must
be in jpeg format. An abstract template can be downloaded at
http://bonenet.net/2005%20Workshop%20abstract.doc. Submit completed
abstracts to scowin@earthlink.net. Accepted abstracts will be
published in a program book exactly as submitted.

Student Travel Support
Limited travel support is available for student attendees from funds
provided by OrthoLogic, the Whitaker Foundation, and the National
Science Foundation. Interested students should send a request to
Steve Cowin at scowin@earthlink.net. Include an estimate of travel
and housing costs, name of the student's mentor, the academic program
in which the student is enrolled, and the number of years the student
has been affiliated with that program. Inclusion of a few sentences
about the student's interest in bone fluid flow would be appreciated.
It is anticipated that most if not all requests will be granted, but
as there are limited funds we must honor requests on first-come,
first-served basis.
