Investigator

Biography

Please note: Dr. Josse is not taking any summer students.

I am still involved in clinical nutritional research with colleagues (also in the division of Endocrinology and metabolism) in the department of Nutritional sciences to which I am cross appointed.

I collaborate in clinical research  with orthopedics and other disciplines within the hospital. Much of the clinical  trial research is now done at TGH  with their metabolic bone disease research group.The osteoporosis centre (of which I am the director) is a focus for clinical and epidemiologic research, as well as graduate and postgraduate education and general patient care.
