Committee of Scientific Advisors (CSA)

Prof. René Rizzoli

Prof. René Rizzoli, Chairman

Prof. Olof Johnell

Prof. Olof Johnell, Vice-Chairman

CSA represents the basis of IOF's scientific integrity and is composed of members from the medical and scientific community. Membership is based on scientific merit. The mandate of CSA is to advise the Board on scientific matters related to IOF and its objectives to further clinical and basic research. The scientifc accuracy of all IOF communications is verified by CSA. The Committee establishes working groups and conducts research projects according to need and the interests and expertise of the membership. See CSA Working Groups, Research Projects and Publications

In order to ensure that the CSA remains an active body, the membership has been divided into two groups. In contrast to Full Members, Corresponding Members have no voting rights and do not attend CSA meetings. They can however participate in research working groups and receive written correspondence from IOF.

Elections were held in October/November 2002 for the Chairmanship of the CSA for the term November 2002-2006.
Prof. René Rizzoli was re-elected as Chairman and Prof. Olof Johnell was elected as Vice Chairman. Elections for regular CSA members whose 4-year term had expired were also held.

CSA welcomes applications to join the Committee from bone disease experts worldwide interested in the opportunity to participate in multinational research and keep informed about osteoporosis initiatives.
