Dr. Stein is a member of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research, and received both a Young investigator Award and Junior Faculty Osteoporosis Research Award from this society. Her research, supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Society of Bone and Mineral Research, as well as private foundations has focused on investigating the quality of bone in patients with osteoporotic fractures, the skeletal effects of glucocorticoids, chronic kidney disease, organ transplant and bariatric surgery. She has also studied abnormalities of vitamin D metabolism in different populations. Her recent work focuses on how bone quality impacts outcomes after orthopedic surgery. Dr. Stein is leading a randomized placebo controlled clinical trial studying whether abaloparatide treatment improves outcomes after spinal fusion surgery.
Dr. Stein’s clinical practice is focused on patients with osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Dr. Stein has also played a role in shaping evidence based clinical practice decisions in the field, serving as a member of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Professional Practice Committee, the International Society of Clinical Densitometry Scientific Advisory Council and the American College of Rheumatology Glucocorticoid Induced Osteoporosis Quality Measure Development Panel.

Dr. Stein is a clinical researcher in the field of metabolic bone disease. She has extensive research experience in the areas of postmenopausal osteoporosis, glucocorticoid induced osteoporosis, vitamin D metabolism, and the use of non-invasive techniques to evaluate bone structure and strength, aspects of bone quality.
Dr. Stein has been Principal Investigator (PI) or Co-investigator of studies investigating the pathophysiology and treatment of postmenopausal and secondary osteoporosis. Her research has involved several multi-disciplinary collaborations, with orthopedists, rheumatologists, nephrologists, and engineers. She received a K23 award from the NIH to evaluate the effects of parathyroid hormone and chronic kidney disease on skeletal microarchitecture and strength in postmenopausal women. This work has led to the identification of several novel microstructural mechanisms for fragility fractures. Recent work has focused on addressing the mechanisms by which various disease states and medications negatively impact bone quality. She was the recipient of a Junior Faculty Osteoporosis Research Award from the ASBMR to investigate the effects of oral glucocorticoids on skeletal structure and strength and is currently Principal Investigator of a study investigating the skeletal impact of epidural glucocorticoids.
Dr. Stein has also served as PI or Co-investigator for randomized clinical trials aimed at improving skeletal outcomes with different pharmacologic and behavioral interventions, including teriparatide treatment for premenopausal women with idiopathic osteoporosis, bisphosphonate treatment for prevention of bone loss after solid organ transplantation, treatment of vitamin D deficiency in obese individuals prior to bariatric surgery, and potassium citrate treatment for prevention of postmenopausal bone loss. She has served as a member of the Data Safety Monitoring Board for two randomized clinical trials.
Other research interests include investigation of bone quality deficits in other disease states as well as the relationship between pre-operative bone quality and outcomes after orthopedic procedures, and the creation of clinical trials investigating whether different pharmacologic therapies can improve these outcomes.
