Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Osteoporosis, a disease of fragile bones resulting in fractures, will strike 50% of women and 25% of men. As a physician scientist, my laboratory is studying stem cells in the skeleton and bone marrow to develop novel regenerative approaches to increase bone quality and strength. We are also interested in how the skeleton supports hematopoiesis, and how diseases and medications that impact bone may affect blood cell production and cancer metastasis.
