Dear Industry Sponsors,
The 16th International Phillip Zorab Steering Committee and the British Scoliosis Research Foundation Council would like to thank all of our industry sponsors for their support of the 2017 conference. The financial support of our major sponsors has been crucial in allowing us to stage this important event, enabling experts to share the most up-to-date research into the causes and treatment of scoliosis.
Since the founding of the BSRF in 1973, the organisation has made a significant contribution to the ongoing research into the causes of idiopathic scoliosis. The BSRF’s mission is to stimulate and finance high-quality research into: the causation of, prevention of, and potential cures for idiopathic scoliosis; the assessment of new forms of treatment – surgical and otherwise; the encouragement of basic scientific research that might add to knowledge of the changes, causal or otherwise, in idiopathic scoliosis, and the support of research by young surgeons to stimulate an interest in scoliosis in newly qualified doctors.
The International Phillip Zorab Symposia takes place biannually for clinicians and scientists with an interest in scoliosis aetiology and the development of more effective treatments. Phillip Zorab was a chest physician at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London who developed an expertise in the management of severe scoliosis, and an interest in the aetiology of idiopathic scoliosis.
The International Phillip Zorab Symposia lectures generate fruitful discussion among experts in the field of scoliosis and are instrumental in inspiring new research. BSRF hopes that you and your company feel as though the investment you have made in your relationship with us has yielded benefits far beyond those promised in the pages of this pack and have put you, and the foundation in a unique position to succeed.
Many thanks for your generous support and we look forward to welcoming you to our symposium.
Yours faithfully,
Steering Committee 2019

• Great promotional opportunities- IPZS is widely promoted to our extensive database of scoliosis specialists, researchers, and allied health professionals and your logo will be included on digital and print promotional materials.
• Be part of creating impact and advancement in the scoliosis field by supporting research and knowledge exchange which will enable discoveries into the cause of idiopathic scoliosis and the development of treatments to improve quality of life for sufferers.


The British Scoliosis Research Foundation (BSRF) is the only charity that exists solely to promote research into the treatment of scoliosis in the UK.
Scoliosis is a progressive and potentially debilitating condition. At present although treatment exists there is currently no cure and the cause remains unknown in many cases. Research is therefore extremely important. Supporting research is the core mission of the BSRF. In 1988, the foundation funded its first research project and has since supported projects all over the UK. The BSRF’s vision is to have contributed, within 10 years, to discovering the cause of idiopathic scoliosis and to have improved the quality of life for people with all types of scoliosis. This will be achieved through funding and encouraging high quality research into the causation and prevention of, and potential cures for idiopathic scoliosis, and the assessment of new forms of treatment.
The BSRF Zorab Symposium is held biennially to disseminate the latest knowledge gained from research, and to allow medical professionals and researchers in the field to share information and best practice.
