Bone Research Society Bone Research Society

The Bone Research Society (BRS) was formerly the Bone and Tooth Society.  
The new name was adopted on 6 July 2005, following the Annual General Meeting and a postal ballot of members. The BRS is the largest scientific society in Europe dedicated to clinical and basic research into mineralised tissues, and is the oldest such society in the world.

Meetings are held annually, attracting a wide audience from throughout the UK and, increasingly, from continental Europe. The presentations are traditionally balanced between clinical and laboratory studies. The participation of young scientists and clinicians is actively encouraged.

The Society's aims

  • To act as the premier forum for research into the calcified tissues, both clinical and basic.
  • To promote and facilitate the study and research of rare metabolic and hereditary bone diseases.
  • To advance the education of the public about the science of calcified tissues and related subjects.
  • To act as the main professional body for scientists and physicians researching calcified tissues, and to interact with other organisations on these matters.
  • To hold scientific meetings, and so publish and disseminate results from studies and research.
