Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to welcome you to the 2024 Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) World Congress entitled Breaking Barriers Through Multi-Disciplinary Research on April 18-21, 2024 in Vienna, Austria.

The annual OARSI Congress is the pre-eminent global forum for all those interested in cutting-edge OA research from academia and industry worldwide.

The theme of this year focuses on the multi-disciplinary approach underlining the synergy between all those who are interested and involved in arthritis research.

Such an approach is reflected by the wide attendance of the OARSI meeting that includes notably basic and clinical research scientists, rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, bioengineers, pain specialists and other healthcare professionals, regulators, and policymakers.

Join us in this exciting meeting to connect to this global network of professionals, with common goals of preventing, managing, and curing the disease, improving the quality of lives of over 300 million OA patients worldwide! 

We look forward to meeting you in person and learning from one another during OARSI 2024 in the beautiful city of Vienna!
