Professor Nicholas Harvey, Chair of the IOF Committee of Scientific Advisors, stated:
“New insights into the role of various dietary factors and nutrients in musculoskeletal health and disease may lead to important clinical advances or future preventative strategies. We thank the winners of the IOF Nutrition Awards for their excellent contributions and encourage them to continue their valuable research in the field of musculoskeletal health.”
