Claire Edwards, Associate Professor of Bone Oncology, has been awarded the prestigious European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) Mike Horton preclinical/translational award in recognition of her significant contributions to the field of bone and calcified tissue.

Claire Edwards receives ECTS award

Claire received the award from Pieter Pietschmann (President-Elect), Salvatore Minisola (Research Committee Chair) and Anna Teti (Co-chair of Grants and Awards Sub-committee), in a ceremony at the recent ECTS meeting in Liverpool.

The ECTS is the major organisation in Europe for researchers and clinicians working in the musculoskeletal field.

Professor Mike Horton (1948-2010) was a hematologist-turned-basic scientist who made significant contributions in the bone field and beyond. He performed pioneering work in osteoclast biology which resulted, among other things, in the recognition of the alpha v beta 3 integrin as a therapeutic target for inhibiting bone resorption.
