|Andy Kin On Wong|
Dr. Andy Kin On Wong has been appointed as a new Co-Director of the Toronto CaMos Centre. In this capacity he joins Dr. Angela Cheung, who has now assumed the role of Director, and Dr. Robert Josse, now Co-Director, who served as Director for many years with great distinction.
Dr. Wong is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. He is also appointed as Assistant Scientist at the University Health Network (UHN). He received his PhD in Medical Sciences with specialization in imaging science at McMaster with Dr. Jonathan D. Adachi and completed his postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Angela Cheung at UHN training on epidemiology and biostatistics. Dr. Wong was awarded the Vanier award in 2011 for his leadership in the CaMos Bone Quality Study. He has since become the director of this investigation that examined over 800 women across 6 CaMos sites to study CT-derived bone microarchitecture information and how it can predict incident fractures. He continues to lead this study while dovetailing a secondary project related to muscle quality in these participants. Dr. Wong is currently affiliated with the Arthritis Program and Joint Department of Medical Imaging at UHN where his primary research interest is investigating postmenopausal women with knee osteoarthritis. Specifically, he will study imaging correlates of knee pain in those with elevated fracture risk; and will determine imaging-related predictors of successful knee arthroscopies.
:: 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 2016 and 2017. When you
