    Advances in Mineral Metabolism (AIMM)/ASBMR John Haddad Young Investigators Meeting

    The Advances in Mineral Metabolism AIMM/ASBMR
    John Haddad Young Investigators Meeting

    AN OPPORTUNITY TO COMBINE SMALL CLINICAL AND BASIC BONE BIOLOGY DISCUSSIONS WITH THE BEST AND CHEAPEST SKIING YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE!!!

    The Advances in Mineral Metabolism AIMM/ASBMR John Haddad Young Investigators Meeting will be held Monday, April 9 (afternoon registration, plus an evening session) through Friday, April 13 (evening session), in Snowmass, Colorado. 

    The 2018 AIMM meeting will take again place at the Stonebridge Inn, slopeside in Snowmass Village. We will be able to accommodate up to 80 registrants.

    The goal of this conference is to discuss important or evolving concepts in bone biology and clinical bone disease in a small and informal group setting. Past participants in this meeting have enjoyed the relaxed environment and serious scientific and clinical discussions… and keep coming back! 

    The atmosphere is enhanced by the midday break (9:30am - 4:30pm), which most use to enjoy a variety of activities available in the Aspen/Snowmass area, such as downhill and cross-country skiing, tennis, hiking and relaxation. This is a great opportunity for young and more established investigators to discuss science and mentoring while having fun. One of the enjoyable features of this meeting has been the ability to combine an interesting scientific medical program with family recreation. We encourage you to bring your families.
