More research into OI is being done than ever before, and the complex findings and breakthroughs can be hard to understand. On Wishbone Day (May 6), the OIF launched an educational series to highlight and explain the work of the Brittle Bone Disorders Consortium (BBDC).
In the Current State of OI Research: An Update for the OI Community, Cameron Penn (President of the OIF Board of Directors) and Brendan Lee MD, PhD (Principal Investigator of the BBDC and OIF Medical Advisory Council Member) discussed the work of the BBDC and the landscape of OI research.
The second video in this series, Women’s Health and Pregnancy, was held on June 24 with Deborah Krakow, MD (OIF MAC member and Professor and Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCLA) and Tracy Hart (OIF CEO).
In both talks, the researchers emphasized the importance of the BBDC, how they approach researching OI, and the big questions they seek to answer. To view session recordings, please visit the OIF website (Video Resources page) or OIF YouTube channel.
