  • Mechanistic and Therapeutic Insights into Skeletal Biology Learned from the Study of Rare Bone Diseases, Thursday, September 11, 2014
    Location: Hilton Americas, Houston, TX
    Description: <p>This workshop, coordinated by the National Bone Health Alliance (NBHA) in partnership with the Rare Bone Disease Patient Network and with the support of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) and the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) aims to: 1)Convene a multi-disciplinary group of experts including researchers, clinicians, and patients with rare bone diseases to advance our understanding of skeletal biology and encourage the development of novel therapies to improve outcomes for individuals with both common and rare bone diseases;<span>&nbsp; </span>2)Identify gaps in our knowledge regarding the biologic mechanisms underlying rare bone disorders and share effective research strategies in translational and therapeutic areas;<span>&nbsp; </span>3)Encourage broad participation both by holding the event the day before the ASBMR 2014 Annual Meeting and providing funding for a significant number of young investigators to attend; and 4)Disseminate the results broadly by publishing the proceedings of the program in a peer-reviewed journal.</p>
