    Gregory R. Mundy Fellowship

    The Gregory R. Mundy Fellowship is offered annually to support the research activities of a deserving young investigator in the cancer and bone field. Gregory Mundy’s career was one of consistent, outstanding achievement over four decades in bone cell biology and its control by hormones and cytokines, the implications of this for osteoporosis, and most notably, for the skeletal complications of cancer. His research has been acknowledged by very many prestigious awards, and his leadership exemplary as President of IBMS, co-founder and President of the Cancer and Bone Society (CABS), President of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) and a tireless worker for the many editorial boards on which he served. A great educator as well as scientist, Gregory Mundy trained more than 150 students and fellows, many of whom have progressed to successful independent careers, and IBMS is pleased recognize his many contributions through The IBMS Gregory R.
