    Date: August 25, 2015

    Dr. Adele Boskey

    The Lawrence G. Raisz Award is given annually in recognition of an individual having a record of outstanding achievements in preclinical translational research (cellular or in animals) in the bone and mineral field. The 2015 ASBMR Lawrence G. Raisz Award will be presented to Adele Boskey, Ph.D., at the ASBMR 2015 Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, USA on Friday, October 9, 2015.

    Adele L. Boskey, Ph.D. is Professor of Physiology, Biophysics and Systems Biology and Biochemistry at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. She holds a similar position in Biomechanics at Cornell University and in Bioengineering at City College of New York. Her research studies the ways that bone structure, composition and mineralization influence bone strength. Dr. Boskey’s research has led to insights into dystrophic calcifications, growth-plate abnormalities, osteogenesis imperfecta, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.  She has also shown that bone quality, rather than bone quantity, can predict patients at risk for fragility fracture.
