:: Featured Researcher


Shirin Kalyan

Dr. Shirin Kalyan is co-Director of the CaMos Vancouver Centre and Assistant Professor in Endocrinology & Metabolism/Medicine at the University of British Columbia. She earned her PhD in Experimental Medicine investigating the pivotal mediators of inflammation in toxic shock syndrome and became interested in sex-differences in immune regulation and its link to the endocrine system. Dr. Kalyan furthered her inter- and cross-disciplinary background in immunology and endocrinology by pursuing novel research studying the interaction amongst steroidal hormones, inflammation, oxidative stress, and bone remodeling for her first postdoctoral training in clinical reproductive endocrinology. In 2010, Dr. Kalyan was awarded a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of Germany to probe the mechanism leading to the observed serious adverse drug effects of a common medication used for osteoporosis and cancer-associated bone disease and found it was related to drug-induced immune and antioxidant dysfunction. As a translational scientist, her research focus is to deepen knowledge of the complex immune-endocrine relationship that confers optimal bone health, metabolism and reproductive function to guide the safest and most effective therapies for diseases rooted in this dynamic intersection.

:: Prestigious Research
Fellowship Award


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
