Summary of "Reflecting on some discoveries of 40 years and their outcomes."

It is a privilege to reflect upon the impact of advances in basic/translational research in the field over the last 40 years. My approach has been to take a single theme and provide a historical account of notable advances over that time and what impact they might have. The theme of intercellular communication in bone remained of interest to me throughout that time, the main discoveries and how they were made, the major changes in thinking, and how they have influenced concepts of bone remodeling.
