China-Australia Musculoskeletal Alliance

A delegation of 7 Professors from the University of Adelaide, the University of Sydney, and the University of Western Australia was invited by the University of Hong Kong and the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology and Chinese Academy of Sciences, to promote joint research between China and Australia in the musculoskeletal disciplines.

Professor David Findlay (Centre for Orthopaedic and Trauma Research) and Associate Professor David Haynes (School of Medical Sciences) represented the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide. During April 4-7, excellent symposia were held in both Hong Kong and Shenzhen, giving us the opportunity to showcase the musculoskeletal research being performed at the University of Adelaide, and to see first-hand the work being done by our colleagues in Hong Kong and China.

In addition, talks were held to identify areas of mutual interest that can form the basis of ongoing collaborative efforts between our institutes. These led to commitments to further relationship-building visits, student exchange and joint research initiatives. Importantly, the visit resulted in the establishment of the China-Australia Musculoskeletal Alliance to develop and promote research collaboration to address major issues in musculoskeletal conditions.
