Dr. Suzanne Bernier Memorial Fund
An annual lecture series and trainee graduate award in Skeletal Biology was established in honour of Dr. Suzanne Bernier (a wonderful colleague, collaborator and mentor, who passed away in 2007), to highlight outstanding contributions to the field of musculoskeletal research. The Dr. Suzanne Bernier Memorial Fund, along with sponsors (Schulich Dentistry, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Dept of Anatomy & Cell Biology, Western's Bone and Joint Institute, and the Collaborative Program in Musculoskeletal Health Research), contribute to Suzanne’s legacy by funding these projects.
The 11th Annual Suzanne M. Bernier Memorial Lecture in Skeletal Biology was delivered on May 10th by Elise F. Morgan, ME, MSE, PhD, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science, and Orthopaedic Surgery, and Mechanical Engineering Director of the Micro-Computed Tomography Imaging Core Facility, Boston University. The title of her talk was: ‘The Search for Better Predictors of Fracture Risk in the Spine’. Read more
