A portion of your race registration is a donation to the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. You can also make an additional donation here.
ASBMR is the premier professional, scientific and medical society established to promote excellence in bone, mineral and musculoskeletal research, and facilitate the translation of that research into clinical practice. Funding cutbacks have left our community with a tremendous need for alternative sources to fund cutting-edge research. Without it, many important discoveries will be delayed and progress will be deferred in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and related bone, mineral and musculoskeletal disorders, including rare bone diseases. The ASBMR Fund for Research and Education is supported by individual donations and provides research grants and training opportunities for basic and clinical young investigators in the bone, mineral and musculoskeletal field. Our research community needs your support; 100% of your gift will be used to support research and the development of the next generation of researchers in our field.
