With great pleasure Linda Kock visited the ICRS 2023 meeting in Sitges, Spain last week. She enjoyed all the presentations and learnings about the state of the art in the field of cartilage repair. Linda her presentation about our bi-axial loading platform for ex vivo cartilage and bone studies was well received by the audience. Besides that it was very enjoyable to meet many peers and (former) colleagues in the field again. All in all a nice and worthwhile experience in a pretty and sunny environment.
