Overview
My longstanding interest is to explore the molecular, cellular and genetic basis of skeletal homeostasis and its regulation in health and disease.WNT signaling controls cell fate decision and tissue homeostasis. WNT signaling in bone has been studied intensively in recent years. However, not all key aspects of how it regulates bone mass are clear and the regulation of signaling specificity between different WNT cascades remain puzzling. Given that WNT signaling can be targeted for drug development, insights into these mechanisms might translate into new therapeutic approaches for rare and common skeletal disorders. Ongoing studies on the role of WNT inhibitors and agonists in skeletal homeostasis are part of the current focus of the lab.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
