Congratulates to Dr. Jin-Ran Chen, who has been awarded the prestigious honor of the 2015 ASBMR Most Outstanding Translational Abstract Award from the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR). This award is given to the lead investigator of the highest ranking abstract submitted to a translational category for presentation at the ASBMR Annual Meeting, which in this abstract is reporting results related to how maternal obesity programs senescence signaling and metabolism in fetal osteoblasts. The honor brings with it the opportunity for an oral presentation at the ASBMR conference.

The hard work that led to this was a team effort with Oxana Lazarenko, Drs. Andres and Shankar and others contributing.
