Vicki Rosen, Ph.D., member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Executive Committee, is the recipient of the 2018 William F. Neuman Award, the most prestigious award given by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR). The award recognizes major scientific contributions in bone and mineral research, as well as contributions to associates and trainees in the areas of teaching, research, and administration.

“I am delighted by this honor and proud to be recognized by ASBMR, as it is an organization that values diversity and highlights the achievements of women,” said Rosen, professor and chair of Developmental Biology at Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM).

Rosen studies the roles that bone morphogenetic proteins play in the development, maintenance, and repair of musculoskeletal tissues — including bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament, meniscus, and muscle — with the goal of developing novel strategies for their repair and regeneration.
