The third International Scientific Tendinopathy Symposium - New Approaches to Tendon Therapeutics - is being held in St Hilda's College, Oxford, on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 September. The event brings together an unprecedented mix of excellent basic and translational science and the finest clinical expertise.

The third International Scientific Tendinopathy Symposium - New Approaches to Tendon Therapeutics - is being held in St Hilda's College, Oxford, on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 September. The event brings together an unprecedented mix of excellent basic and translational science and the finest clinical expertise.

In addition to the scientific meeting, featuring twelve international plenary speakers, along with open papers and poster sessions, there will be two satellite events on Sunday 7 September - a hands-on clinical workshop on tendinopathy and a consensus meeting on outcome measures.

The meeting has proved highly popular and is now fully booked, but you can follow the meeting and join the discussion on Twitter using hashtag #Tendons2014.

The Symposium is co-chaired by NDORMS Head of Department Professor Andrew Carr, Associate Professor Philippa Hulley, also of NDORMS and Associate Professor Mark Thompson, of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Oxford.

Speaking of the event, Prof Thompson says: "ISTS 2014 will pull together exciting plenary speakers, excellent scientists and expert clinicians in the inspiring surroundings of St Hilda's College to find new ways of treating painful and debilitating tendon disease. The meeting venue is full, but social media will take the conversations wider and further, and we will be posting video of the final discussion session."

The meeting proceedings will be published in the BJSM soon after the event.

For the first time in its three-edition history, the meeting is co-sponsored by the International Symposium on Ligaments and Tendons, while the commercial sponsors are the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM), UTC Imaging BV, TRB Chemedica, Biomet, Mathys, RegenLab and Bose.

Prof Thompson has already spoken to BJSM about this year's Symposium and a podcast is online. This year's programme is also published.
