Benjamin Wildman - The Dewey Decimal System of Bone: An Epigenetic Pathway that Controls Bone Growth In-Vivo
There are over 53 million individuals in the United States that suffer from, or are at high risk of getting osteoporosis. With very few effective methods to treat this bone disorder, it is important to discover new therapeutics. One method to identify new treatments is to better understand the cells that build bone: osteoblasts. We have identified an epigenetic pathway in osteoblasts that regulates bone growth in mice. By better understanding how osteoblasts develop to build bone, we seek to identify strategies to more effectively treat bone loss disorders like osteoporosis.
