:: Prestigious Research
Osteoporosis Canada (OC) and Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos) were partnered in 2009 to provide a joint Fellowship Research Award in the amount of $20,000 for a 1 (one) year period. This award is granted to a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow to pursue research training with a CaMos investigator. The goal of the award is to support bright, young minds in the field to increase research capacity and expedite the development of strategies for the prevention, diagnosis and management of osteoporosis within Canada.
We received a number of strong applications since 2009 and the OC-SAC Application review committee was very impressed with the quality of all the proposals.
OC and CaMos are proud to announce the successful recipient for 2018. click here
