Inaugural Herbert A. Fleisch ESCEO-IOF Medal is awarded to Professor Gerard Karsenty
Date:3/9/2011

The European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO) and the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) have announced that Professor Gerard Karsenty of the Columbia University Medical Center is to be awarded the first Herbert A. Fleisch ESCEO-IOF Medal. Herbert Fleisch was a renowned researcher whose groundbreaking work contributed to the development of the field of scientific knowledge about metabolic bone diseases and their treatment.

The newly created award, valued at 20,000 Euro, recognizes a researcher who has made outstanding and groundbreaking achievements in basic bone science. The Medal will be presented on March 23rd at an award ceremony to take place at the opening of the European Congress on Osteoporosis & Osteoarthritis (ECCEO11-IOF), in Valencia, Spain.

Gerard Karsenty M.D., Ph.D., is Professor and Chair, Department of Genetics & Development, at the Columbia University Medical Center, New York. Professor Karsenty is renowned for his many fundamental contributions to understanding skeletal development and skeletal physiology. His laboratory has been instrumental in identifying Runx2 as the master gene of osteoblast differentiation and in deciphering the entire genetic cascade of osteoblast differentiation. He has contributed to the molecular elucidation of bone mineralization and has made significant advances in the study of bone physiology, based on the hypothesis he proposed that there must be a common control of bone mass, energy metabolism and reproduction. Testing this hypothesis revealed the existence of a central control of bone mass, a function regulated by leptin, a hormone appearing during evolution with bone cells and that inhibits both appetite and bone mass accrual. His laboratory then showed that bone is itself an endocrine organ producing an hormone, osteocalcin, that favors glucose homeostasis and male reproduction. Lastly Dr. Karsentys lab has shown that gut-derive
