Professor Jonathan D. Adachi M.D. has been named the winner of the International Osteoporosis Foundation's (IOF) 2014 Olof Johnell Science Award. Adachi is Professor and Alliance for Better Bone Health Chair in Rheumatology at the Department of Medicine of McMaster University.

The Olof Johnell Award is granted in recognition of extraordinary and internationally recognized contributions to the field of osteoporosis in a scientific or policy implementation area.

IOF President John Kanis stated, "Jonathan (Rick) Adachi is a thought-leader in the bone field and highly deserving of this prestigious award. His epidemiological research and clinical studies have helped to advance our knowledge of risk factors and therapies for osteoporosis. 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. He received the North American Menopause Society award for Innovation in Osteoporosis Research. In 2012, he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his work in osteoporosis.
