History & Founders

This all started in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2017. The first meeting on bone marrow adiposity was held in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2017, with the second meeting in August 2016 held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Both meetings were a success in that they for the first time brought together scientists and physicians from different backgrounds (bone metabolism, cancer, obesity and diabetes) to share ideas and advance research into, and our understanding of, the patho/physiological role of adipocytes in the bone marrow.
