We’re so very proud of the members of IOF’s Committee of Scientific Advisors (CSA). The CSA members, elected to the Committee by their peers, are recognized as leading global experts and key opinion leaders. As shown by recent bibliometric and citation analyses, CSA members dominate top citation rankings in the musculoskeletal field, thus attesting to the influential role of the Foundation in advancing osteoporosis and musculoskeletal disease research; finding consensus and promoting clinical best practice; linking allied disease areas; and advocating for healthcare policy change to benefit people with musculoskeletal diseases.
