Prof Mark Forwood
Mark Forwood was appointed as the Foundation Chair of Anatomy at Griffith University in 2009, and Head, School of Medical Science in 2013. He was a NHMRC Fellow at Indiana University with David Burr and Charles Turner from 1991-1994, studying skeletal biology and bone tissue consequences of suppressing bone remodeling using bisphosphonates. Following his Fellowship, he returned to the Department of Anatomy at The University of Queensland, where he continued his research in skeletal biology and taught gross and musculoskeletal anatomy. His laboratory continues to study skeletal biology, bone remodeling in stress fracture repair and optimization of sterilization conditions for bone allografts. Prof Forwood has been continually funded by NHMRC since 1996, holding 10 project grants as Principal Investigator and 4 as Co-Investigator. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the International Bone and Mineral Society from 2011-2016, the Editorial Board of Bone and a Co-Section Editor for Current Osteoporosis Reports.
