Key Collaborations

The scientific environment for this collaborative group has been highly successful for many of the past epidemiologic and genetics investigations that have emerged from the Framingham Osteoporosis Study. In particular, the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center (HRC) has been the home for the Framingham Osteoporosis Study over the past 25 years. Over this time, we have successfully completed five Framingham field studies, and will soon complet another field study, collecting bone microarhitecture measures (high resolution PQCT of the radius and tibia as well as hip BMD, and whole body DXA), and continuing to actively ascertain fractures. Recently, we finalized a novel phenotype derived from quantitative computed tomography of the spine with our co-investigator, Dr. Mary Bouxsein from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

In addition to MUSC Faculty, Musc staff includes statistical programmers, bone density technologists, project directors, coordinators, and research assistants. Our major collaborations are with the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the Department of Biostatistics at Boston University of Public Health, the University of California, the University of North Carolina, Oregon Health & Sciences University and the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC.
