To Bone Researchers in the NYC area:
The first purpose of this email is to make you aware that the
NYC mineralized tissue seminar series that was disbanded over five
years ago is being restarted. The second purpose of this email is to
tell you how you can participate if you are so inclined. Future
seminars are posted on www.bonenet.net, a website dedicated to
research on the mechanosensory system in bone. (This website is
operational, but not fully developed and suggests for further
development of the site would be appreciated.) The attachment
contains the detailed information on the Fall 2001 seminar series and
duplicates material that is on the website. You may request a
reminder for each seminar by sending an email to Steve Cowin
(scccc@cunyvm.cuny.edu).

The seminar series is be held this Fall in room 3309 at the CUNY
Graduate Center on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 PM. The CUNY Graduate
Center is in the newly renovated Altman Building at the corner of
34th Street and 5th Avenue, catty-corner from the Empire State
Building. There are several subway lines nearby and it is less than a
ten-minute walk to either Grand Central Station or Penn Station.
There is money to support parking for graduate students, apply to
Steve Cowin (scccc@cunyvm.cuny,edu). The first seminar of this new
series is on October 24th. The speaker is Mitch Schaffler, Ph.D.,
Professor of Orthopaedics, Cell Biology and Anatomy & Director of
Orthopaedic Research, Department of Orthopaedics, The Mount Sinai
School of Medicine. He will speak on MECHANICAL FACTORS AND
REMODELING OF COMPACT BONE. An abstract of this talk and a
description of his research interests, as well as those of the other
fall seminar speakers are posted on www.bonenet.net and also
contained in the attachment. The next seminar speaker is Haviva
Goldman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology
at the Brooklyn College, CUNY on November 7th. Her seminar title is
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HETEROGENEITY IN THE MICROSTRUCTURAL AND
GEOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF HUMAN BONE. The third seminar speaker is
Nancy Camacho, PhD., Associate Scientist, Mineralized Tissue Section,
Research Division, Hospital for Special Surgery who will speak on
November 28th. Her seminar title is BISPHOSPHONATES IN OSTEOGENESIS
IMPERFECTA: ARE WE MAKING BRITTLE BONES MORE BRITTLE? The last
seminar of the Fall 2001 Series, on December 12th, will be presented
by Clark Hung, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in
the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University, who
will speak on FLUID FLOW EFFECTS ON BONE CELLS: INFLUENCE OF
FLOW-CELL-SUBSTRATE; INTERACTIONS AND CELL MECHANICAL PROPERTIES.

We hope that this seminar series will appeal to you. We will welcome
your attendance and hope that you will pass along this information to
interested colleagues. Please direct your questions, requests for
more information and feedback to me.
Kind regards, Steve Cowin (scccc@cunyvm.cuny,edu)
