Age On! What's New with Vitamin D and Osteoporosis?
Neil Binkley earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin and subsequently received training in internal medicine at the Marshfield Clinic. After several years in private practice, he returned to UW-Madison and completed a geriatrics fellowship. He is an associate professor in the Divisions of Geriatrics and Endocrinology at UW, where he is also director of the Osteoporosis Clinical Center and Research Program and associate director of the UW Institute on Aging. He is a past president of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry. His current research involves optimizing evaluation of vitamin D status, exploring racial/ethnic differences in response to vitamin D supplementation, evaluation of functional assessment in older adults and the importance of sarcopenia, or the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass, in fracture risk.
