To set the wheels in motion, we have organized our first annual symposium entitled: "Making Connections”. Speakers include active members and collaborators in our research centre, along with others with whom we hope to generate new linkages. We invite you and your trainees to come and learn about our research and join us in discovering the PATH to better health.

Melatonin Supplements Could Prevent Osteoporosis
In recent years, melatonin supplements have exploded on the market as a tool to help people get to sleep—the Nutrition Business Journal estimated that in 2012 (the most recent year for which data are available) sales reached $260 million; in 2007, that number was just $90 million. Now scientists say the immensely popular pills could help prevent or even reverse osteoporosis.

Research on elderly rats suggests possible avenue for prevention of osteoporosis
Faleh Tamimi, is the leader of a research team that has just discovered that melatonin supplements make bones stronger in elderly rats and therefore, potentially, in elderly humans too. “Old rats are tedious to work with because they get sick a lot and that means they also cost a lot more. But if you’re interested in diseases like osteoporosis, they’re an essential part of the process.”
