He has also made notable contributions to the development of clinical guidelines and is an internationally recognized speaker and advocate on behalf of osteoporosis prevention."

Dr Adachi has conducted many clinical trials and has published extensively on a wide variety of therapies for the prevention and treatment of corticosteroid-induced and postmenopausal osteoporosis. As a result of his expertise he has participated in the development of clinical management guidelines in Canada. Dr Adachi is currently involved in the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study and is also focusing on the structural analysis of bone and cartilage as measured by pQCT and pMRI. He is the author of more than 400 scientific articles and book chapters. Dr. Adachi was awarded the First Annual Phillip Rosen Award in Rheumatology, the Lindy Fraser Award, and the Alliance for Better Bone Health Chair in Rheumatology at McMaster University.
