2019 ASBMR Conference

Dr Taher Mahmud was delighted to attend the 2019 ASBMR conference in Orlando.


Dr Taher Mahmud was pleased to be present at the 2019 ASBMR conference in Orlando.

The ASBMR Annual Meeting is the largest and most varied gathering in the field of bone, mineral, and musculoskeletal research, drawing over 3,000 participants from more than 70 countries. These attendees include clinicians and researchers from all career stages, specialising in an array of disciplines.

A highlight for Dr Mahmud was attending the lecture by Dr Graham Russell, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of bisphosphonates – drugs typically associated with an increase in bone density.

It’s been an engrossing journey from the initial hypothesis and tissue culture studies in 1969 to the present day, where we have an effective osteoporosis treatment at our disposal.

Fortunately, we also have other holistic approaches for reversing osteoporosis. These methods, complementing pharmacological interventions, further expand our toolkit in the fight against this prevalent bone disease.
