    ASBMR Mourns the Passing of Melvin Glimcher

    Date: May 29, 2014

    ASBMR is sad to announce the passing of long-time member Melvin Glimcher, M.D. Glimcher was an esteemed physician and surgeon, professor emeritus at Harvard Medical School and a former chief of orthopedic surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Children's Hospital. He was the father of Laurie Glimcher, M.D., also an ASBMR member. The two collaborated on osteo-immunology projects and published multiple papers in the field.  We offer our deepest condolences to the Glimcher family. Please feel free to share a kind note on the ASBMR Community page.
