ICRS - International Cartilage Regeneration and Joint Preservation Society

The ICRS is the main forum for international collaboration in cartilaginous tissue research and joint preservation. Recognizing that there is a continuum from cartilage injury to degenerative joint disease we bring together basic scientists, clinical researchers, physicians, other healthcare providers and members of industry, engaged or interested in the field of articular biology, its genetic basis and regenerative medicine.

If you are interested in joining ICRS, please visit their membership page.
