Invite to attend workshop: Innovative/biological therapies in sports injury

We are looking for journalists with a specialist interest in sports medicine to attend and report on a one-day workshop on “Innovative/ biological therapies in sports injury” to be held London 28th March 2017 at The Wellcome Trust. The workshop is an invitation-only event, hosted by the Universities of Sussex and Swansea. Building on the findings of the BIOSPORTproject (www.biosportproject.org) it aims to bring together academics, sports body representatives, medical insurers, industry representatives and leading sports medics, physiotherapists and surgeons working in elite sports in the UK to discuss (i) the market for and science behind novel ‘orthobiologics’ used for treating sports injuries (ii) treatment protocols, dilemmas, pressures and insurance issues in elite cycling and football (iii) ethical and welfare considerations.

If you are interested in attending and reporting on this event please contact Catherine Coveney at C.Coveney@Sussex.ac.uk for further information.
