Friends of Mineral Metabolism

The Friends of Mineral Metabolism offers a wonderful opportunity to support the future of research in mineral metabolism at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Your support of this world-renowned Center provides a source of funds for exploring new research and treatment ideas. One hundred percent of the membership donations to the Friends of Mineral Metabolism are used to support ongoing research at the Charles and Jane Pak Center for Mineral Metabolism and Clinical Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center. 

Membership in the Friends of Mineral Metabolism supports the work conducted in the Charles and Jane Pak Center for Mineral Metabolism and Clinical Research. Under the direction of Orson Moe, M.D., holder of The Charles Pak Distinguished Chair in Mineral Metabolism, and with the aid of Charles Y.C. Pak, M.D., former Center Director, and his team, many of the mysteries of osteoporosis, kidney stones, and other mineral metabolic diseases have been solved, and effective treatments and preventative drugs have been developed.
