    Research Interests:

    I am a cell and molecular biologist with an interest in mechanisms of bone physiology and pathology. Specifically, I investigate signaling pathways and molecules that govern the differentiation and function of osteoclasts - cells responsible for the breakdown and remodeling of bone. My lab uses animal models and cell culture systems in conjunction with molecular biology tools including gene and protein expression analysis, cDNA cloning, and transgene expression.
