NIGMS Council Considers Strategies to Bolster Biomedical Workforce

Last month, the National Advisory General Medical Sciences Council (NAGMS) – which provides oversight to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – heard updates on programs intended to strengthen the biomedical research workforce pipeline. NIGMS Director Jon Lorsch, PhD, introduced plans for the Next Generation Researchers Initiative, a trans-NIH initiative intended to provide additional support to Early Stage Investigators (ESIs, within 10 years of receiving their terminal degree) and Early Established Investigators (within 10 years of receiving first independent research grant).

Join FASEB For the Webinar:
Advocating for Science Using FASEB's "Value of Federally Funded Biological Research" Resource: October 11, 2017

Please join FASEB for a special webinar on Wednesday, October 11 at 2 PM EST. In these times of uncertain funding, communicating the benefits of research that improves the nation’s health, quality of life, and economy is imperative. This webinar will provide an overview of FASEB's new “Value of Federally Funded Biological Research” slide deck, along with tips on effective presentation. The slides are designed for both scientific and non-technical audiences and can be used at district meetings, scientific talks, and public outreach events. Register for the webinar here.


Sign up for the Webinar on IOF Global Patient Charter Taking Place on Tuesday, Oct 10, 2017 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM EDT

The IOF Global Patient Charter is a new advocacy tool that was developed by the Capture the Fracture® (CTF) Steering Committee with input from global patient societies and patients. This webinar highlights the goals of the Charter and shows why such an advocacy tool is needed to help convince healthcare authorities to make fracture prevention a healthcare priority. It also presents the different resources that are available for use by HCPs, patient societies, families and patients. Sign up for the webinar here.

Mark Your Calendars- World Osteoporosis Day is October 20

Mark your calendar! Friday, October 20th is World Osteoporosis Day, a global awareness campaign about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. This year’s theme, “Love Your Bones – Protect Your Future,” encourages everyone to take early action against osteoporosis through regular exercise, a bone-healthy diet, avoiding negative lifestyle habits & consulting your health care professional about your risk of the disease. ASBMR will be participating through highlighting the latest scientific research on osteoporosis and we encourage our members to join us by sending in articles or your own thoughts on the importance of continuing osteoporosis research, which we will share on our social channels. You can also join the conversation and build awareness by wearing white on October 20th and following the hashtags #worldosteoporosisday and #loveyourbones. For more information visit the World Osteoporosis Day website.

In-Memorium: Judith E. Adams

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of ASBMR member Professor Judith Adams. Professor Adams had a long prolific academic and clinical career. Professor Adams most recently served as a Consultant Radiologist at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and has been Clinical Director of the Radiology Department at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Chair of the regional committee for Clinical Excellence awards. She had a particular interest in osteoporosis, fracture recognition and the measurement of bone mineral density and her research has resulted in over 200 peer-reviewed publications, 24 invited reviews and 34 book chapters. She will be remembered as a great teacher and an exemplary colleague. She was dedicated and worked with passion to raise the radiologists' awareness and improve the healthcare of patients with osteoporosis. Professor Adams was so gracious and energetic that it was only natural to have a positive impact to those that knew her. Join us in recognizing Professor Adams' contributions to our field by leaving a note, sharing a memory, or contributing a donation in her honor.

Be a part of a global research community that allows you to connect with and learn from other professionals focused on different research and research disciplines to advance the science in bone and mineral research.
