Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) Jonathan Lowery, Ph.D., assistant professor of physiology, has been named co-chair of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) Young Investigator Subcommittee.

Dr. Lowery’s term begins October 12, 2015 and continues through the 2018 ASBMR annual meeting. ASBMR is a professional scientific organization with more than 4,000 members worldwide. Its 2015 annual meeting takes place October 9-12 in Seattle, Washington.

The Young Investigator Subcommittee’s mission is to “nurture and develop young and mid-career investigators, consider their career development needs and develop member loyalty to and participation in ASBMR.” The subcommittee falls under ASBMR’s Membership Engagement and Education Committee, co-chaired by investigators Dr. Melissa Kacena and Dr. Stavroula Kousteni at Indiana University School of Medicine and Columbia University Medical Center, respectively.

Dr. Lowery came to MU-COM in July 2014 after a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Vicki Rosen at Harvard University. He completed his Ph.D in cell and developmental biology at Vanderbilt University under the direction of Dr. Mark DeCaestecker. He has been active in ASBMR since 2010 and has served on the Young Investigator Subcommittee since 2014.

At MU-COM, Dr. Lowery serves as chair of the research and graduate studies committee and delivers a variety of lectures to medical students on the topics of molecular endocrinology and skeletal physiology. His active research projects focus on the molecular mechanisms controlling bone mass in the adult and aging skeleton.
