    The 2017 annual ICMRS-ASBMR Membership Meeting was held in Denver on September 8, 2017.   A total of 78 active ICMRS members attended this meeting. Earlier this year, our society conducted an election to vote for President-elect, officers, and board members (election results are listed below). Therefore, this meeting marks an important transition of our leadership team. Dr. Ling Qin, the outgoing Membership Committee Chair and new President-Elect, presided over the meeting. The meeting started with a summary report from the departing president Dr. James Wang on the achievements of ICMRS under his leadership over the past two years (2015-2017), including revamping ICMRS website, implementing membership reform, establishing Mentorship Program, enhancing educational services, expanding China Collaborating Centers, and improving the financial status. He also highlighted our society’s official meeting, the 3rd International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Conference (ICMRC), which was successfully held in Shihezi, China, last month.


    Following Dr. Wang’s report, our new President, Dr. Tingting Tang, gave an inaugural address introducing his new leadership team members and outlining his strategies of expanding our society within the next 2 years. One major move is to create two new regional development committees: Australia and Asean Development Committee and Europe Development Committee. Another focus is to launch Scientific Committees that promote research excellence and collaboration among members.


    Dr. Qin, the President-Elect, introduced herself as a long-term society member, briefly covered the society history, and requested continuous support from our members.



    This meeting was highlighted by the announcement of Webster Jee Young Investigator Awardees: Ren Xu from Cornell University, Jun Li from Rush University, and Wei-Ju Tseng form the University of Pennsylvania. Each awardee gave a brief introduction about their outstanding research. They were presented with an award plaque and a cash prize of $500 each.

    The International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Society (ICMRS) successfully convened the 3rd International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Conference (ICMRC-2017) in Shihezi, Xinjiang, China on Aug. 17-20, 2017. This biennial conference, concurrent with the 5th International Biomedical Forum of West China, was co-organized by ICMRS and Shihezi University, and hosted by the First Affiliated Hospital of Shihezi University. The theme of ICMRC-2017 was to "Enhance basic research, promote scientific and technological innovation, and serve ‘The Belt and Road’". Aiming at enhancing communication among medical research colleagues, exchanging the latest research findings and expanding the international view of domestic scholars, leading scholars from the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, and the mainland China were invited to present the worldwide leading-edge research findings and technologies in the basic medical study of musculoskeletal system.


    Prof. James H-C. Wang, ICMRS President and Conference Co-Chair, delivered a speech in the opening ceremony of ICMRC-2017 on behalf of ICMRS.


    Prof. Chenhui Shi, President of the First Affiliated Hospital of Shihezi University and Conference Co-Chair, chaired the opening ceremony of ICMRC-2017.


    With nearly 400 attendees, 3 parallel sessions (2 basic science sessions and 1 clinical study session), 108 podium presentations (including 13 plenary lectures, 57 invited talks, and 38 oral presentations), and 63 poster presentations, ICMRC-2017 turned out to be a great success.



    Besides the regular scientific presentations, ICMRC-2017 also featured translational strategies by inviting venture capital professionals to present valuable information on topics such as start-up financing and venture investment. Prof. Xu Cao, Immediate Past President of ICMRS and Conference Co-Chair, presented a special talk on utilizing venture capital to promote translational skeletal disease research. In addition, ICMRS Junior Leadership Development Committee (ICMRS-JLDC), chaired by Profs Liu Yang and Lucas Lu, organized a special session on the topic "How to publish a high impact paper" by ICMRS Junior Leadership Development Committee (ICMRS-JLDC). Professors Xu Cao, Hong Zhou, and Anne-Marie Malfait shared their thoughts for preparing high quality academic papers as well as how to follow with a rebuttal and get animal studies accepted for publication in high profile journals.


    During the conference, the China Development Committee (CDC) also organized an ICMRS China Collaborating Centers (CCCs) & CDC business meeting, which included the CCC representatives, CDC members, newly approved lifetime members (LTMs) of ICMRS, and specially invited guests. President James Wang presented an opening remark and a brief introduction of important society affairs. Honor plaques were presented to the newly approved LTMs who attended ICMRC-2017. Four newly approved CCCs briefly introduced themselves. In addition, the Orthopaedic Research Center in the University of Hong Kong - ICMRS Collaborating Center for Bone Diseases and Aging, directed by Prof. William W. Lu, made a brief introduction to show their interest in hosting the 4th International Chinese Musculoskeletal Research Conference (ICMRC-2019) in Hong Kong.



    The Award Committee selected and presented 28 prizes in total, including 14 best presentations in the oral and 14 best presentations in the poster categories.




    Finally, the conference ended with the closing remarks from Prof. Tingting Tang, President-elect of ICMRS, and Prof. Xu Cao.

Seventeen members of the first ICMRS-JLDC were also present at the meeting.


    Prof. James Wang, President of ICMRS, reviewed the process of establishing ICMRS-JLDC, and highlighted the goals of this ICMRS Committee, which are to establish and seek more ICMRS collaboration centers in China, and promote internationalization of Chinese musculoskeletal research on behalf of ICMRS. He also stressed that it was important to cultivate more academic talents to sustain an ever-growing impact of ICMRS in years to come.


    Other members of ICMRS-BOD also projected a vision of future ICMRS-JLDC. Prof. Tingting Tang and Prof. Bin Li put forward specific requirements for the future work of ICMRS-JLDC namely, assisting collaboration centers to facilitate ICMRS’s work, and making good use of the WeChat to propagate and carry out plans of education and publicity for ICMRS.





    Prof. Liu Yang, as the Chair of the first ICMRS-JLDC, delivered a speech summarizing the requirements of all ICMRS-BOD members for the future work of ICMRS-JLDC:

    1. ICMRS-JLDC would function as the link and bridge between domestic cooperation centers and ICMRS and seek all kinds of opportunities for collaboration, including applying for collaborative scientific programs, jointly training postgraduates, encouraging young scientists’ exchanging programs and even promoting visiting scholarship to facilitate academic dialogues.

    2. ICMRS-JLDC not only will be responsible for expanding its own members, but also could recommend domestic musculoskeletal researchers or institutes to become ICMRS members or new collaboration centers to enhance influence of ICMRS in China.

    3. ICMRS-JLDC would actively respond to future conferences of ICMRS, conduct academic reports, organize workshops, and facilitate hosting academic competitions for young scientists.

    4. ICMRS-JLDC would strengthen academic exchanges between ICMRS and communities or conferences in the field of bone and mineral research to expand the impact of ICMRS in this field.

    At the end of the meeting, Prof. Yixian Qin, Chair of ICMRS BOD, sent his wishes and concluded, “ICMRS-JLDC consists of vibrant and enthusiastic young scientists and they will be the hope of ICMRS in future!”
