Hector Kay Lecturer

Vincent Mosca, MD
Researcher and Expert in Management of Foot Deformities

Dr. Vincent Mosca is Professor Emeritus (Retired) in the Department of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine and a retired pediatric orthopedic surgeon at Seattle Children’s Hospital – as of April 28, 2022. He is a former Director of the Department of Orthopedics at Seattle Children’s and Chief of pediatric orthopedics at the University of Washington. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina, and then did a 1-year fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada before starting his practice in Seattle.

Approximately 90% of his clinical work, research, teaching, lectures, and publications pertain to the understanding and treatment of foot deformities in children and adolescents. Dr. Mosca has authored or coauthored approximately 100 articles, book chapters, and monographs, including an extensive and comprehensive monograph on the biomechanics and practical principles-based application of the Ponseti method for clubfoot.

He has been an invited speaker/visiting professor in more than 130 medical centers and orthopedic conferences in the US, and in 87 orthopedic conferences in 37 countries outside the US. His book, published in 2014 and entitled Principles and Management of Pediatric Foot and Ankle Deformities and Malformations, is the culmination of his life’s work in the field. The second edition will be published this summer.

Dr. Mosca is on multiple orthopedic journal editorial boards. He is listed in 14 national/international Who’s Who directories and has been listed in the book, The Best Doctors in America, since 1996. He is also listed in The Leading Physicians of the World directory.

His greatest honor has been his induction into the Hall of Fame of the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America in April 2023.

Presidential Lecturer

Wilsaan M. Joiner, PhD
Professor and Chancellor’s Fellow, UC Davis

Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior, College of Biological Sciences
Department of Neurology, School of Medicine

Center for Neuroengineering
Center for Neuroscience 

University of California, Davis 

Dr. Joiner studies how we use different sources of information to aid behavior, ranging from visual perception to movement planning and updating. Specifically, he is interested in how external and internally-generated sensory information is integrated in healthy individuals, in comparison to certain disease and impaired populations (e.g., Schizophrenia and upper extremity amputees). Achieving this understanding may lead to better methods for diagnosing and treating impairments of the nervous system.”
