    Date: February 11, 2015

    Felix Bronner, Ph.D passed away in his sleep on February 7th, 2015.  He was 93 years old.  Dr. Bronner received his undergraduate degree from the University of California and his Ph.D. degree from the Massachusetts institute of Technology in 1952.  The focus of his long and productive scientific career was the mechanisms regulating calcium absorption and metabolism.  He authored 121 journal publications, edited 79 book chapters, and was an editor for 58 different books.  He also was the first Chairman and Organizer of the Gordon Research Conference on Bones and Teeth.  Among his many honors, was the 1974 Andre Lichwitz Prize, which is awarded by the French National Institutes of Health (INSERM).  The ASBMR Felix Bronner Young Investigator Award is presented each year by our Society in his honor. Dr. Bronner was a member of the faculty at the University of Connecticut Health Center since 1969.  He was a highly curious scientist who could always be counted on to provide intriguing questions for any data presentation or scientific lecture.  Share a kind note or fond memory on the ASBMR community page.
