Musculoskeletal Biology Research

IU School of Medicine has a long tradition of outstanding research in musculoskeletal biology, as the school has been a leader in studies on osteoporosis and arthritis since the late 1960s. Initially, much of the work in this area was clinically-oriented and performed primarily by physician scientists, but the musculoskeletal biology faculty in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology began working closely with biomedical engineers in the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Research Center in the 1970s. The department continues to expand its musculoskeletal biology faculty and to collaborate with scientists at Eli Lilly and Company and other research partners who work to develop therapeutic agents for the treatment of osteoporosis. The musculoskeletal biology group in Anatomy and Cell Biology is the home of the Bone Journal Club and the Indiana Bone and Mineral Study Club, important forums for training junior scientists, for continuing the education of all researchers and physicians working in the area, and for fostering collaboration among scientists throughout Indiana who are working in the field of musculoskeletal biology.
