    In-Memoriam: Dr. Norman Howard Bell

    Date: December 14, 2017


    It is with great sadness that ASBMR announces the passing of Norman Howard Bell, M.D., professor emeritus at the Medical University of South Carolina and founding member of ASBMR, on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at the age of 86. He will be remembered for his keen intellect, traditional values, and remarkable research success. Supported through continuous grants from the NIH, he and his colleagues made great strides in the fundamental understanding of Vitamin D deficiencies and the prevention of osteoporosis. In addition to his research, Dr. Bell mentored young people who are carrying on the research that he initiated.
