Osteologie 2019

At this year’s Osteologie 2019 in Frankfurt am Main we had the opportunity to lead and organize our first own session at a MuSk-specific congress. The decision was not easy thanks to the high quality of the contributions and the wide range, which excellently showed which different questions are being dealt with under the umbrella of the MuSkITYRs and where there were points of contact for other members.

The following prizes, sponsored by AgNovos Healthcare and Amgen, went to:

Verena Fischer and Felix Schmidt (Best Presentation),
Miriam Tschaffon and Chiara Grabmann (Best Graphical Abstract),
Martin Kuric (Best question)
as well as Johannes Gleich and Alexander Keppler (Travel Grants).

MuSkITYR session at the DGE 2019

Chaired by Ann-Kristin Picke and Elena Tsourdi, 6 MuSkITYRs had the chance to present their work. The best abstract (Dominik Saul) and the best lecture (Elin Kahlert) each received prizes (provided by Shire).

Science meets Art 2018

Science is objective. Nevertheless, it repeatedly delivers pictures that are subjectively perceived as beautiful. We wanted to take this into account.

We are pleased to announce the winners of the “Science meets Art 2018” competition. We received 23 very inspiring submissions, which made the decision very difficult. Nevertheless, our three-person jury consisting of an artist, a clinical scientist and a basic scientist was able to identify and award the first three places.

We congratulate: Cornelia Schneider on first prize with her picture: “an eye opener”

We also congratulate Felix Schmidt on second place with his picture “Adlers Fittiche” and Heike Weidner on third place with her picture “Diamond”.

The winners receive prize money sponsored by AMGEN.
