    Congratulations to our ASBMR Fund for Research and Education Research Grant Awardees, Jessica Alm, Ph.D. (pictured left) and Christina Vrahnas, Ph.D. (pictured right). Because of the generous donations made by ASBMR members, the ASBMR Fund for Research and Education Research Grant will provide funding for $7,500 each to Drs. Alm and Vrahnas to learn a new technique successfully complete their research projects in the bone and mineral field. Dr. Alm’s project aims to investigate the functional characteristics of skeletal cells in patients with early-onset primary osteoporosis caused by a genetic defect. Dr. Vrahnas aims to develop improved methods to detect bone compositional changes in mouse models and biopsies of human patients with increased bone fragility. Congratulations once again to our awardees!
