The winners and the titles of their abstracts are as follows:

To date, more than 35 young researchers from Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle-East & Africa have received IOF Young Investigator Awards. The Awards reflect IOF's dedication to advancing scientific knowledge on osteoporosis, and in particular to promoting innovative research by young researchers in all parts of the world.

In Kuala Lumpur, IOF also held its 2nd IOF Young Investigator Mentoring Programme, an important new initiative of the IOF Committee of Scientific Advisors which was held for the first time in the Asia-Pacific region on December 13, 2012.

A select number of young investigators were invited to attend an exclusive hands-on course which focuses on research, writing publications and delivering presentations. The full-day course, led by a renowned faculty of experts, teaches practical skills and provides insightful feedback that will be of great value to the young scientists as they further their careers in bone research.
