Vitamin D Supplementation: Where’s the Evidence? (online)

October 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Clifford J. Rosen, MD Faculty Scientist, Director, Center for Clinical and Translational Research at MaineHealth

About the seminar:  Vitamin D supplementation is the most commonly administered treatment in clinical practice in the US and vitamin D measurement  testing is rampant. I will discuss the physiology of Vitamin D, the rationale for treatment, and the evidence that supposedly backs that up.

About the speaker:  Dr. Rosen oversees the Rosen Musculoskeletal Laboratory and the Physiology Core at the MaineHealth Institute for Research (formerly MMCRI) and is a board certified endocrinologist. In the last 10 years, the Rosen laboratory has been studying mesenchymal stem cell fate with particular reference to the switch between pre-adipocytes and pre-osteoblasts, and with a focus on the bioenergetic programs of those progenitors. He is the Director of the Physiology Core of the P20 COBRE in Mesenchymal and Neural Regulation of Metabolic Networks (NIGMS) and his lab has studied osteoblast progenitor mitochondrial respiration as well being involved in pre-clinical studies of changes in the microbiome with age, diet, and location.
