INSERMLaunching of the INSERM French network : NetwOArk

RMES is happy to announce the launching of the INSERM French network dedicated to peripheral and spine osteoarthritis : NetwOArk. Jerome Guicheux will serve NetwOArk as national coordinator with Francis Berenbaum as a co-coordinator. NetwOArk aims bringing together all the scientific actors involved in osteoarthritis research in order to federate and promote the emergence of high-level scientific works in this field. NetwOArk is created for 4 years and is supported by INSERM, Aviesan and ITMO PMN. NetwOArk is organized around 4 work packages coordinated by Claire Vinatier and Esther Potier (WP 1 pathophysiology), Khorng Ea and Yves-Marie Pers (WP2 disease bio markers), Christelle N’Guyen and Jeremy Sellam (WP3 prevention and treatment) and David Moulin and Emeline Perrier-Groult (WP4 innovation). A first scientific event will be organized in 2020 to gather the French actors involved in Osteoarthritis research. We hope to meet you all to share recent advances in basic, translational and clinical research dedicated to this incurable and disabling disease.
