The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) recently announced their 2015 Esteemed Awardees, and the WHRI is thrilled to see Paula Stern, PhD at Northwestern University among those recognized! These prestigious awards are given annually to recognize the achievements of the ASBMR members, and Dr. Stern was awarded the Louis V. Avioli Founders Award, which is given in recognition of a member who has made fundamental contributions to bone and mineral basic research.
Dr. Woodruff of the Women’s Health Research Institute stated “Paula is a leader in bone biology and richly deserving of the Louis V. Avioli Founders Award from the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research,” and today we commend her for her accomplishment! Dr. Stern Graduated from the University of Michigan in 1693 with her PhD in Pharmacology, before going on to do her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Rochester. Dr. Stern’s primary research relates to the signaling pathways involved in hormone action on osteoblasts and osteoclasts, and its implications for osteoporosis, cancer metastases to bone and women’s health. Congratulations, Dr. Stern, on your achievements!
