Please note: we are still working to finalize some speakers, so please be aware that there may be some changes to the schedule below.
January 27 @ 9:00 AM Eastern
Session Title: Imaging
Session Description: Imaging is the hallmark of osteoarthritis diagnostics and follow-up after interventions. In this OARSI Live Hour, we will hear three highly interesting presentations focusing on compositional and structural osteoarthritic changes in joint tissues - evaluated by MRI - and their association with longitudinal outcomes.
Moderators: Simo Saarakkala, PhD, University of Oulu, Frank Roemer, PhD, University Hospital Erlangen
Mike Bowes, PhD, imorphics
Frank Roemer, PhD, University Hospital Erlangen
Jeffrey Driban, PhD, Tufts University

February 3 @ 9:00 AM Eastern
Session Title: Walk this way: Insights into knee osteoarthritis from gait mechanics
Session Description: Knee osteoarthritis is a biomechanically driven disease. In this edition of the OARSI Live Hour, we will learn about changes in gait mechanics after high-tibial osteotomy, advance our understanding of the role of gait mechanics in disease progression, and discuss how people with knee OA respond to perturbations during walking.
Moderators: Deepak Kumar, PT, PhD, OCS, Boston University, Katherine Boyer, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Rebecca Moyer, PhD, Dalhousie University
Cheryl Kozey, PhD, Dalhousie University
Patrick Corrigan, PhD, Northeastern University

OARSI LIVE WEBINAR RECORDINGS
Session Title: The Art and Science of Sample Size Estimation: Basic Science and Clinical Considerations
Session Description: Whether you are conducting animal research or plan a large Phase 3 randomized controlled trials, one of the key parts of planning, conducting and reporting research – is sample size! In this session, Statistical Editors of Osteoarthritis and Cartilage will offer their insights into ‘do’s and dont’s’ of sample size estimation for clinical and basic science research, discuss major pitfalls of sample size estimation, describe journal requirements regarding sample size justification and offer a few key practical lessons of how to ‘do it right’.
Moderator: Elena Losina, PhD Brigham & Women's Hospital
Jamie E Collins, PhD Brigham & Women's Hospital
Aleksandra Turkiewicz, PhD Lund University
Session Title: Succeeding in Scientific Publishing: what are our editors looking for?
Session Description: Have you ever wondered why that paper got published and you are struggling to get your manuscript accepted? Wonder no more. The editors of Osteoarthritis and Cartilage and Osteoarthritis and Cartilage Open are going to tell you what constitutes a good manuscript. This will be followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers, so come prepared to ask all those questions you have always wished you could ask a journal editor.
Moderator: Frank Beier, PhD, University of Western Ontario
Joel A Block, MD, Rush University, Editor-in-Chief Osteoarthritis & Cartilage
Henning Madry, MD, Saarland University, Editor-in-Chief Osteoarthritis & Cartilage Open
Session Title: New insights into the epidemiology of OA
Session Description: In this session, three OA researchers will present their abstracts on the epidemiology and clinical aspects of OA. They will provide insights into risk factors of OA and the impact of the disease.
Ida Haugen, PhD, Diakonhjemmet Hospital
Martin Englund, PhD, Lund University
Martin Thomas, PhD, Keele University
Karin Magnusson, PhD, Lund University
Session Title: Advancing our understanding of osteoarthritis through observational clinical studies
Session Description: In this session, we will hear from talented OA clinical researchers who have used longitudinal clinical data to examine the relationships between walking, obesity and pain mechanisms and OA structure and symptoms.
Moderator: Gillian Hawker, PhD, University of Toronto
Tuhina Neogi, MD, PhD, FRCPC, Boston University
Elizabeth Badley, PhD, University of Toronto
