The Bone and Muscle Interactions meeting in August 2019 brought together national and international leaders in the new field of bone and muscle interactions to address the evidence of increased bone and muscle interactions and discuss how these can lead to treatments for musculoskeletal diseases. Over 160 researchers attended the meeting to discuss exciting research in this field.
