Orthopedics This Week—May 22, 2017
Orthopedics This Week featured a tribute to the late esteemed researcher Adele Boskey, PhD.
Dr. Boskey was program director of the Musculoskeletal Integrity Program at HSS and senior scientist. Her longtime colleague, HSS chief scientific officer, Lionel B. Ivashkiv, MD, said "she was one of the real founding scientists and original leaders of research at HSS."
Mathias P. Bostrom, MD, hip and knee surgeon at HSS, knew Dr. Boskey for 27 years. Dr. Bostrom said the key to understanding her is "her amazing commitment to the next generation of scientists, particularly to orthopedic clinician scientists and also to women orthopedic scientists. Her mentorship was just amazing."
Jane E. Salmon, MD, rheumatologist at HSS, knew Dr. Boskey since 1982 when she began working as a rheumatology fellow at HSS. Dr. Salmon said Dr. Boskey was "supportive and understood the challenges of women working in science, as well as the opportunities. She was loving, supportive and nurturing, but with high standards. She was an amazing woman. She was an innovator."
