News & Events
As a dynamic institution at the forefront of bone research, The Mellanby Centre hosts international speakers at our regular Research Seminar Series.
The next seminar will be on Friday 11 October 2019 at 1.00-2.00 pm, LT03, F Floor, Medical School – Dr Nicholas Rattray, Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy
and Biomedical Sciences, Glasgow, Scotland – “Developing metabolic markers of frailty“.
The work of the Mellanby Centre has recently been the subject of news articles.
We have been successful in obtaining a number of grants this year
We have been successful in winning a number of prizes in the past year
The aim of our meeting is to communicate novel & innovative musculoskeletal research within our group and, more importantly, with our friends and collaborators from other research institutions and industry, and with other University colleagues. We also aim to showcase our research profile to the broader public and research funders.
The year 2019 marks 50 years since the first publication on the biological effects of the bisphosphonates. Since then more than 27,000 papers have appeared on PubMed! On 15-17 July 2019 Sheffield celebrated this golden anniversary. The meeting reviewed developments over the past 50 years, discussed our current understanding and looked at what the future may hold.
The discovery that BPs could inhibit bone resorption led very quickly to their clinical use in Paget’s disease and in patients with skeletal complications of cancer and later in osteoporosis. They remain the major drugs used for these conditions and their use in clinical therapeutics is likely to continue well into the future.
A full meeting report will follow shortly.
