Research/Areas of Interest:

The central themes of our laboratory include the genetic regulation of insulin-like growth factor relative to skeletal metabolism, the relationship between marrow adipogenesis and osteoblastogenesis, and the interactions between whole body and skeletal metabolism. We use age, genetic, environmental, diet and pharmacologic manipulations in order to understand the complex regulation of bone remodeling.
