Professor Mike Horton (1948-2010) was a hematologist-turned-basic scientist who made significant contributions in the bone field and beyond. He performed pioneering work in osteoclast biology which resulted, among other things, in the recognition of the alpha v beta 3 integrin as a therapeutic target for inhibiting bone resorption. His warm personality and wide-ranging interests inspired many young researchers. The award is for €1000 and open to individuals who have made a significant basic or translational contribution to the field of bone and calcified tissues. Nominees must be nominated and seconded by ECTS members. The award is announced during the ECTS annual congress and the awardee expected to actively contribute to ECTS either within the congress program or within one of the committees. Please submit this nomination form before 9 December 2022.
