Our studies address the molecular basis for the formation and function of bone-resorbing osteoclasts, and are directly relevant to the molecular genetics of bone in health and disease.

Projects focus  on the molecular mechanisms by which osteoclasts, which are formed by fusion of monocyte precursor cells, track their size and “decide” when they are large enough to stop fusing. The project involves (also) proteomics and advanced molecular techniques.

We are looking for highly-motivated rotation students, for rotations 1, 2, and 3 in projects noted above and in related projects.
