Message from the Interim Director


Fall is fast fading and we are moving into the holiday season.

The trainees in the Collaborative Program in Musculoskeletal Science are approaching the end of Fall term and the Foundations Course.   We have had excellent speakers for the Seminar Series which will continue through May 2015. The Seminar dates and speakers can be found under the Events tab.

Congratulations to the 2014-2015 Bone and Mineral Group Scholarships awardees: Kristen Pitzul, Health Services Research, University of Toronto and Lucia Zhang, Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Toronto. All the applicants were strong candidates and we wish you well in your research. 

Mark your calendar! Research Day will be held on Thursday, February 12, 2015 in the 18th Floor Auditorium of Mount Sinai Hospital. Plans are well under way. Our invited speakers are Drs. Katherine Siminovitch and Ed Keystone who will take us from the bench to the bedside and beyond as they unfold the story of the advances in rheumatoid arthritis. You will also have the opportunity to hear about the exciting research being conducted by the program trainees through oral presentations and posters. We had over 80 attendees last year and anticipate an excellent turn out again this year. Please keep checking the website for updates as the schedule is finalized.

You will find more information about the Centre, the Collaborative program and Centre activities on our website.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Safe and Happy Holidays as we move into December and the New Year.

All the best,


Aileen M. Davis BScPT MSc PhD
