SCS researcher receives internationally competitive Young Investigator Award

Dr David Scott
Congratulations Dr David Scott from the Department of Medicine on the award of a prestigious American Society of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) John Haddad Young Investigator Award.  Dr Scott will use the US$1600 award to attend the Advances in Mineral Metabolism (AIMM)/ASBMR Young Investigators' Meeting in Snowmass, Colorado, USA in April.

The John Haddad Award is the major young investigator award of the ASBMR; only ten are awarded annually and only one other Australian researcher has been a recipient in the past five years.

“The Young Investigators Meeting provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate our outstanding bone and muscle research team and facilities, including the bone imaging suite in the Clinical Trials Centre at the Monash Health Translation Precinct,” said Dr Scott.

“By highlighting our expertise and capabilities at the meeting, we expect to attract collaborations from international researchers.”

Dr Scott’s research focuses on sarcopenia, obesity and osteoporosis.
