Congratulations to Subburaman Mohan, 2017 Recipient of the ASBMR Louis V. Avioli Founders Esteemed Award!
Date: July 27, 2017
Dr. Mohan is a VA Senior Research Career Scientist, Director of the Musculoskeletal Disease Center at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System and a Research Professor of Medicine and Orthopedics at Loma Linda University, California. Dr. Mohan has made seminal contributions to the understanding of growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor actions on bone. He discovered two novel IGF binding proteins and elucidated their role in the musculoskeletal system. His current research, funded by the VA and NIH, is centered around the genetic regulation of peak bone mass, molecular pathways for thyroid hormone and hypoxia signaling in endochondral ossification, epigenetic mechanisms of vitamin C deficiency-induced skeletal fractures, and the long-term consequences of mild traumatic brain injury in bone.
