Hot Topics in Cerebral Palsy – Muscle Research Forum
The AusCP-CTN invites you to join us at the “Hot Topics in Cerebral Palsy – Muscle Research Forum – 30th November 2018” for a day of presentations from a panel of national and international experts, on the topics of muscle and biomechanical research in cerebral palsy.
The AusCP-CTN CRE aims to foster and develop current and future leaders in cerebral palsy research and clinical practice. The CRE’s vision for the future workforce for children with Cerebral Palsy is national capacity building comprising individuals (Medical/Allied health) with expertise in more than one key area of research and/or training (basic science/neuroscience, epidemiology, clinical/health services initiatives, and translation/implementation).
International Keynote Speaker
Professor Richard L. Lieber, PhD.
Professor & Chief Scientific Officer, Shirley Ryan Ability Lab & Departments of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation & Biomedical Engineering. Northwestern University, Chicago.
Topic: Biological & Biomechanical Studies of Skeletal Muscle Contractures in Cerebral Palsy.
