    ASBMR Mourns the Passing of Claude D. Arnaud, M.D.

    Date: March 23, 2016

    We are saddened to announce the passing of ASBMR member Claude D. Arnaud, M.D.  He was a founding member of the ASBMR, its third president and past recipient of the ASBMR William F. Neuman Award, its most prestigious award.

    Dr. Arnaud was internationally recognized for his research in parathyroid hormone (PTH) and parathyroid hormone related peptide (PTHrp) and published more than 200 scientific papers during his 30 year career in bone research. After being a faculty member of the Endocrine Research Unit at Mayo Clinic, he came to San Francisco in 1977 to be the founding Chief of the Endocrine Research Unit of the San Francisco Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and Chief of the Endocrine Section at the San Francisco Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.  He had a highly productive career as a clinical and basic investigator; mentor to countless fellows, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty members; and physicians in the practice of endocrinology and metabolic bone disease.

    Information about upcoming arrangements will be shared with Society members as soon as they are known. We extend our condolences to Dr. Arnaud’s family at this time of loss.  We invite you to leave a note or share a memory on the ASBMR community page
