Our Mission

Osteoporosis and Breast Cancer Research Center is dedicated to support research directed towards the discovery and development of innovative methods to address women’s health issues related to menopause such as: osteoporosis, cancer, muscle loss, weight gain, and sleep and mood disorders. We provide funding for biomedical research and support scientists to educate their peers and participate in scientific collaborations.

This support provides scientists with necessary lab equipment and supplies, and allows them to establish and maintain relationships with other research scientists throughout the world to collaborate and share all scientific results. In addition, Osteoporosis and Breast Cancer Research Center educates the public and increases public awareness of women’s health issues by supporting scientists in their attendance and participation at scientific conferences and by providing information to the public at their request.
