ONGOING MISSION:
It has been well recognized that multiple factors, whether individually or
in combination, contribute to non-contact ACL injury. While research has
increased our understanding of contributions of these factors, continued
work in this area is needed. There are a number of directions currently
being investigated including causes related to structural, hormonal and
neuromechanical factors. ACL Research Retreat V will update attendees on
ongoing research in the area and to discuss new research directives aimed
at understanding the epidemiology, risk factors and prevention of
non-contact ACL injury. In the past, this retreat has attracted some of
the foremost national and international scientists involved in this area
of research. It is anticipated that the information presented will make a
valuable contribution to the existing body of literature and continue to
strengthen the foundation upon which quality research and clinical
interventions can be advanced.

FORMAT:
The format will feature presentations by well known experts in the field
as well as 15-minute podium presentations and poster presentations of
research relating to non-contact ACL injury epidemiology, risk factor
identification, and prevention. Significant time will be provided for
group discussion following each keynote and each group of podium
presentations. At the conclusion of the meeting our goal will be to
revisit and update the consensus statement from the 2008 research retreat
and set sights on future research directions based on progress in the
field.
