Two of the Early Stage Researchers of the BonePain II network, Chelsea Hopkins and Ahmed Barakat from the University of Copenhagen, represented the BonePainII network together with their supervisor, Anne-Marie Heegaard, at the 3rd Danish Bone Research Workshop on January 31 – February 2, 2020.
The workshop is an initiative to promote interaction between bone researchers. It is organized by the University of Southern Denmark with the support of the Danish Bone Society and the International Osteoporosis Foundation.
The workshop featured talks ranging from current challenges in the field, novel methods and technologies, and – of course – pain research. The programme included e.g. talks on osteoporosis therapeutics, endocrinology and unique skeletal sites and evolution as well as poster presentations. Chelsea Hopkins and Ahmed Barakat presented their research projects at the poster session.
This workshop was a good opportunity for the BonePainII researchers to network with other bone researchers in Denmark.
