Members elected by the 2017 Constitutive Assembly (2017- 2022)

Christophe Chauveau


Deputy Director of the Lab Pathophysiology of Inflammatory Bone diseases, with expertise in the study of bone marrow adipocytes in mouse models of chronic energy deficit, and bone marrow stem cell (BMSC) differentiation. Member of the executive board of the French Society for Biology of Mineralized Tissues, and member of the Scientific Board of BMAS. Current research focuses on the regulation of BMA and BMSC differentiation in several mouse models displaying bone loss.

Beata Lecka-Czernik


Annegreet Veldhuis


Clinical fellow in Endocrinology specializing in metabolic bone diseases at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam and the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Postdoctoral researcher in the Rosen Musculoskeletal Laboratory Maine Medical Center Research Institute, Scarborough, USA. Member of the Dutch Calcium and Bone Metabolism Society, European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS), American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR), Dutch Endocrine Society and European Society for Endocrinology (ESE), and the Endocrine Society. Member of the ECTS Academy and International Endocrine Scholar of the ESE. Current research focuses on the endocrine regulation of human bone marrow adiposity, with experience in clinical trials using MRI, histomorphometry and cell culture to assess bone marrow adiposity.

Mark Horowitz


Dimitrios Karampinos


Principal investigator at the Technical University of Munich with expertise on Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Member and Junior Fellow of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
