Identification of osteogenic skeletal loading regimens
The role of muscle function as a mediator of bone homeostasis
Neuromuscular dysfunction and neurogenic inflammation
Strategies to inhibit heterotopic ossification
Our group studies how bone cells and bone as a tissue perceives and responds to mechanical stimuli (or the lack of stimuli). Our work is multi-disciplinary and ranges from molecular biology to in vivo imaging of the skeleton.
