Research Abstract:

Our work encompasses research in the areas of molecular and cellular biology, neurosciences, physiology,
and skeletal regeneration. Our laboratory has two main aims.

1. To define the relationship between neuropathy and skeletal disease.

2. To identify the mechanisms underlying neural regulation of marrow adipose tissue biology.
