Our goal is to prevent fractures thereby maintaining independence and quality of life in older adults through education, research and clinical care.
The University of Wisconsin Osteoporosis Research Program located in Madison, Wisconsin is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of fractures in older adults; what we call “bone attacks.” We are dedicated to providing accurate, cutting edge information about osteoporosis, sarcopenia and fracture risk reduction to the general public.
Under the direction of Drs. Neil Binkley and Bjoern Buehring, the Center actively participates in clinical research studies. Current initiatives include:
- Study of optimal approaches to identify muscle loss with age
- Enhancement of understanding of vitamin D status
- Studies to evaluate potential medications to improve bone and muscle strength
