To Bone Researchers in the NYC area:

The Fall 2007 Bone Seminar Series begins later than normal this fall,
on October 9th, because of the 8th International Bone Fluid Flow
Workshop held in the city on September 13th and 14th. On October 9th
there are two speakers giving a joint seminar, Shelly Weinbaum (CCNY)
and Clint Rubin (SUNY-SB) on GOOD, GOOD, GOOD VIBRATIONS: EVIDENCE
FOR THE THERAPEUTIC POTENTIAL OF LOW-MAGNITUDE, HIGH FREQUENCY
MECHANICAL SIGNALS

Details about all seminars appear below as well as on our website:

THE BONE SEMINAR SERIES

The Bone Seminar Series has as its focus the mechanosensory system in
bone. Seminar program and workshop information are regularly posted
on www.bonenet.net, a website dedicated to research on the
mechanosensory system in bone. Please send comments on the website to
the webmaster, Bill Green or to me

THE FALL 2007 BONE SEMINAR PROGRAM

Normally, seminars will be held on Tuesdays from 7:00 to about 8:30
PM in the rooms indicated in the CUNY Graduate Center at the corner
of 34th Street and 5th Avenue, catty-corner from the Empire State
Building. However on December 12th the seminar will be on a Wednesday
to avoid conflict with a Jewish holiday. 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 (contact information at
the bottom).

SOCIAL BEFORE EACH SEMINAR

Before each seminar, please join us for an hour or so of socializing
and exchanging ideas beginning at 5:45 PM (to 6:45). All seminar
attendees are invited to gather at the Heartland Brewery (see below)
prior to the presentation. The speakers and others will be downstairs
at the Heartland Brewery starting at 5:45 PM. Appetizers will be
provided as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Supplemental beverages
(i.e, alcoholic) will require out-of-pocket cash. Please note that
there will be no food or beverages provided at the seminar so come
early to the Heartland for both and for good conversations. Ask
downstairs at the Heartland Brewery for the Bone Seminar Group.

Title: GOOD, GOOD, GOOD VIBRATIONS: EVIDENCE FOR THE THERAPEUTIC
POTENTIAL OF LOW-MAGNITUDE, HIGH FREQUENCY MECHANICAL SIGNALS

ABSTRACT: Exercise is recognized as a critical regulatory signal to
the skeleton, but which specific components are responsible for
influencing bone mass and morphology remains unknown. There is
mounting evidence that extremely low magnitude (
