SKELETAL RESEARCH
CENTER

 

AFFILIATED FACULTY

The clinical and basic sciences faculty are headed by Drs. Goldberg and Moskowitz and by Dr. Caplan respectively, who represent the Executive Committee of the Center. The Executive Committee functions as the Co-Directors of the Center, with shared responsibility for the Center activities. They assist with the day-to-day management of the Center, generating policy and the long-term objectives.
