Congratulations to the 2020 Recipients of the ASBMR
Young Investigator Awards for Virtual Ph.D. Training!

ASBMR is pleased to announce the twenty-six recipients of the 2020 ASBMR Young Investigator Awards for the ECTS Digital Ph.D. Trainee Course!  These awards covered the registration costs for ASBMR young investigators to participate in the ECTS and GEMSTONE COST-Action Digital Masterclass for Ph.D. Students, Trainees, and Young Investigators held this past week. The course promoted general knowledge of bone research to young investigators featuring workshops, and offered attendees interactive workshops, mentoring sessions, and presentation opportunities with feedback. Please join us in congratulating this year’s recipients!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Crysvita (burosumab) for treatment of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23)-related hypophosphatemia in tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO), a rare disease caused by slow-growing tumors that produce excess levels of FGF23. Crysvita, developed by Ultragenyx, is the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment option for those with TIO, where in approximately half the cases, surgical removal of the tumors is not possible.
