The International Centre for Mechanical Sciences

CISM (Centre International des Sciences Mecaniques)

Announces a

BONE CELL AND TISSUE MECHANICS COURSE

July 9-15, 1995

The goal of this course will be to review the entire
area of bone cell and tissue mechanics, with an emphasis
on bone remodeling. Besides being informative, it is
planned that the course will function as a forum for the
exchange of data, philosophy, and ideas across disciplinary
divides and so provide further stimulus for a
comprehensive approach to the problems of bone
mechanics.
