    ASBMR’s John Haddad Young Investigator Awardees Attend Advances in Mineral Metabolism (AIMM) Meeting

    Date: April 23, 2014

    Since 1999, the ASBMR has partnered annually with the Advances in Mineral Metabolism (AIMM) to offer young investigator awards to attend the AIMM Meeting in Snowmass, Colorado, USA. Each recipient of the ASBMR John Haddad Young Investigator Award is required to present his or her research during a 25-minute interactive presentation at the meeting and has opportunities for interactions with senior scientists. For 2014, ten awardees each received $1,600 in travel support from ASBMR to help offset the cost of attending the AIMM meeting. Pictured above are the 2014 Awardees with ASBMR President Roberto Civitelli, M.D., and Suzanne Jan de Beur, M.D., at this year’s meeting, which was held April 7-11.
