Dr. Clifford Rosen, director of clinical and translational research and senior scientist at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute, gives a "tour" of the recent history of osteoporosis research and the NIH's and the NIAMS' role in sponsoring much of it. Among the examples Rosen highlights are genetic studies that have improved our understanding of a major cell-signaling pathway in osteoporosis, the wealth of new basic and translational research spawned by that understanding, and the importance of data that continue to come from the NIH-funded Study of Osteoporotic Fractures, now in its twenty-first year.
