Dr Justyna Miszkiewicz is a Lecturer in Biological Anthropology who specializes in skeletal biology at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. She is also an Honorary Research Associate with the Skeletal Biology Research Centre at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK. She has expertise in bone biological plausibility for associations between social adversity, social structures and trajectories of bone loss and maintenance in ancient human populations. Over the past several years, she has studied the effect of lifestyle on bone and dental quantity and quality in human skeletal remains from archaeological contexts, placing particular emphasis on the socio-economic stratification in medieval societies. Associate Professor Sharon Brennan-Olsen is a Principal Research Fellow at Department of Medicine-Western Health, University of Melbourne, Australia. She is a social epidemiologist and Program Director of 'Social Epigenomics and Population Health' at the Australian Institute for Musculoskeletal Science (AIMSS). Her research interests are the social determinants of musculoskeletal diseases and health service utilization, and the biological mechanisms that may underpin the social gradient of osteoporosis, sarcopenia and arthritis: in other words, how social and environmental exposures across the lifecourse influence the phenotypic expression of bone, muscle and joint diseases. Professor Jose A Riancho is professor of Medicine and director of the Department of Medicine and Psychiatry at the University of Cantabria, as well as chief of section of Internal Medicine at the University Hospital M. Valdecilla, both in Santander, Spain. He has extensive clinical experience in the management of patients with osteoporosis and other metabolic bone disorders. His research is focused on bone biology, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Current research lines include several clinical and translational projects, specially related to the genomics and epigenomics of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. His research activities have received continuous funding by the Instituto de Salud Carlos IIII (Spanish Government) and other public and private institutions. He has published more than 200 papers in international peer-reviewed journals. He is a member of several scientific societies. He participates in several international consortia dedicated to investigate the genetic basis of skeletal disorders.
