Orthopaedic Research Society 2020

The past week Dr. Libo Zhou, our postdoc, attended ORS 2020 to present one of our research topics, titled “Anti-cancer Drug Delivery via DNA-inspired Janus-based Nanotubes”

ORS 2020 was held in Phoenix, Arizona on 8-11 February 2020. Dr. Zhou had some time to walk around Phoenix as well and she loved it! She went to Desert Garden and took a few pictures of special flora found only in the desert (which is hardly seen in the New England area!) The weather was also quite nice, according to her, it is a little dry but she loved it! 🙂


“Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) has been around for about 60 years helping and supporting engineers, surgeons, veterinarians, biologists, clinicians around the world in pursuit of a world without musculoskeletal limitations. Collaboration is needed to move the field of specialization within musculoskeletal research, forward.  Science and technology have pushed the field forward; whether related to improved care and treatment, early diagnoses of disease, improved techniques, improved instrumentation, medical devices, etc.  It is a partnership that moves science from bench to bedside.  The aging population will rely on the orthopaedic surgeon and their care to help them to sustain a high quality of life.  But, in the end, it all begins with the research.”

“The Journal of Orthopaedic Research (JOR)the official journal of the ORS, is the forum for the rapid publication of high-quality reports of new information on the full spectrum of orthopaedic research, including life sciences, engineering, translational, and clinical studies.”
