The ASBMR Forum on Aging and Skeletal Heath was held March 21-22, at the Natcher Conference Center on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
Over 270 leaders in research on the biology of aging came together at this meeting with those in the bone field to exchange cutting-edge concepts in aging research with ongoing and planned studies on the epidemiology, mechanisms, and prevention/treatment of age-related bone loss and fractures.
Session Chairs, speakers and representatives from the National Institutes of Health met afterward to discuss what was learned and identify key questions to be addressed in future research.
ASBMR was pleased to present 24 Young Investigator Awards to support young investigators and encourage them to attend meetings such as this one, as they are critical to the future growth of the field.
