The IFMRS Knowledge Network
One of the main challenges we’ve identified through discussions so far is the need to overcome existing knowledge gaps and knowledge barriers – in other words, the need to make good knowledge about MSK research more easily and more widely accessible, and to build a strong international knowledge-sharing network around that. The “Knowledge Network” is the IFMRS’ attempt to begin to address this challenge.
The MSK-KP is an open-access resource that aggregates, integrates, analyzes, and displays ‘omic results relevant to musculoskeletal traits and diseases. The MSK-KP will facilitate and accelerate musculoskeletal disease research by comprehensively amassing and distilling “big data” to make them accessible to all researchers.
The HubLE is the IFMRS Online Learning Environment for young investigators in the musculoskeletal (MSK) field. We aim at empowering early investigators to share, network, and engage in discussion and dialogue with other researchers and professionals from across the world.
And Help Us Change
We are constantly growing with new members joining us each year.
Our partner list extents to affiliate partners that support our mission.
Membership of the IFMRS is open to all incorporated, independent, non-profit musculoskeletal research organizations which are governed by a democratically elected board of volunteer leaders, and provides a unique opportunity to establish direct and regular contacts with other musculoskeletal societies to exchange information, knowledge and ideas; to learn from each other; and to speak with one voice. Please note that we have no individual members: membership is only open to organizations, who pay an annual membership fee based on number of members.
The IFMRS welcomes applications for Affiliate Membership from any organization which has an interest in the field of musculoskeletal research. Affiliation is free of charge and allows participation in strategic discussion and involvement in IFMRS working groups, but does not confer any formal representative or voting rights.
By supporting and working with the IFMRS, you will be collaborating with a truly international federation of world-renowned, leading societies, with a combined membership of over 18,000. The best way to do this is via Corporate Partnership.
Corporate partnerships allows the IFMRS to initiate and deliver the activities and projects in our Strategic Plan. There are three tiers of support, with a corresponding level of benefit. All corporate partners will be acknowledged according to their level of support on the IFMRS website.
