Bone Biology

Interdisciplinary research ranges from projects in basic bone biology, including genomics and stem-cell research, to diagnosis of bone disorders and predictive clinical and radiographic screening methods for osteoporosis. Studies of biological mechanisms of bone development and metabolism and analyses of genetic, hormonal, growth, cytokine and other factors are translated to clinical applications in diagnosis and treatment of maxillofacial and general bone health and pathology.
