ACL Research Retreat VI

March 22nd – 24th, 2012

Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of Kinesiology

Reminder - Deadline for Early Registration (Reduced Rate): February 3rd, 2012

The format will feature keynote presentations from those doing cutting edge research in the field and 15-minute podium presentations of original research relating to the gender bias in ACL injuries. 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 2010 research retreat (Journal of Athletic Training. 2010:45(5):499-508) and set sights on future research directions based on progress in the field.

Ajit Chaudhari, PhD - Trunk Motor Control & Its Influence on Lower Extremity Mechanics and ACL Injury Prevention

Malcolm Collins, PhD - Identification of Genetic Risk Factors: Implications for understanding the molecular mechanisms of ACL injury

Tron Krosshaug, PhD - The Mechanism of ACL Injury - What do we know and where do we need to go from here?
