Deadline: April 30, 2014
Harold Frost’s ideas transformed the face of skeletal biology and orthopedic science and he is regarded by many as being the most influential theoretician in skeletal biology of the 20th century. Harold Frost developed the process of quantitative bone histomorphometry, discovered the intermediary organization of bone and shed theoretical insights into the adaptation of bone to mechanical forces and hormones. In addition to Harold Frost's many scientific accomplishments, he was an active participant in the Sun Valley Workshop on Skeletal Tissue Biology, an annual meeting that emphasizes interaction between young investigators and senior investigators. His participation in the workshop influenced many young scientists. The award was established in Dr. Frost’s honor.
To be eligible, an applicant must be a 2 year post-doctoral fellow or resident with no more than 2 years as an Assistant Professor as of September 1, 2014. Note: ASBMR Harold M. Frost Young Investigator Awards are open to ASBMR members and nonmembers.
