In Memoriam

AADR is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Adele Boskey, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York.  Dr. Boskey was a research trailblazer and led the field in musculoskeletal research.  Her pioneering research in the application of biophysical and imaging technologies to define the composition, structure and functional properties of bone changed the field. That work greatly deepened our understanding of bone quality and fracture risk. 

She was the 1994 recipient of the IADR Distinguished Scientist Basic Research in Biological Mineralization Award and served on the Journal of Dental Research editorial board.  www.legacy.com/obituaries/nytimes/obituary.aspx?n=adele-boskey&pid=185286252
