A loyal supporter of The Paget's Association, our Honorary President and Trustee, Graham Russell, is Emeritus Professor of Musculoskeletal Pharmacology and continues his research within the Botnar Research Centre, and also in the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research at Sheffield University.
Professor Russell played a key role in the discovery and development of the biological effects of bisphosphonates, and in their clinical development and evaluation for the treatment of bone disorders, including Paget’s disease, myeloma, cancer metastases in bone, and osteoporosis.
To celebrate the opening of phase 2 of the Botnar Research Centre, a portrait of Professor Graham Russell was commissioned. The portrait was painted by Keith Breeden and was on display at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition in The Mall Galleries, near Trafalgar Square.
