Welcome To Brittle Bone Disorders Consortium

Who We Are

We are a group of physicians, researchers, and educators focused on learning more about osteogenesis imperfecta and developing new and better treatments to improve the care of patients with osteogenesis imperfecta.

Funding Opportunity: Seeking Proposals for Pilot Study Projects

The Brittle Bone Disorders Consortium (BBDC) initiates and supports collaborative research on osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). The BBDC welcomes both consortium members as well as non-BBDC investigators to propose pilot studies in OI that leverage BBDC research data or infrastructure.
