Event details

Dr James R Edwards, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences from the University of Oxford

Research synopsis: Dr James Edwards obtained a DPhil from the University of Oxford, Wadham College where he began his research career examining the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing normal and pathological bone remodeling. In 2004, Dr Edwards moved to the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and subsequently at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, US. Here he investigated new therapeutics in fracture repair, unique pathways mediating cancer-induced bone disease and identified a novel link between the ageing process and the deterioration of the musculoskeletal system over time. Dr Edwards has recently relocated to the University of Oxford, NDORMS to continue his research themes examining the ageing process and musculoskeletal degeneration.

Dr Edwards is the recipient of multiple awards, including the AIMM John Haddad Young Investigator Award, ASBMR Outstanding Contribution to the Pathophysiology of Osteoporosis Award and a New Investigator Award from the European Calcified Tissue Society.
