  • Research

    My research interests are in skeletal biology and include studies on how lipids, particularly omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, and flavenoids affect bone modeling and remodeling in normal and estrogen-deficiency conditions. I am also involved in studies utilizing rodent models of chronic renal disease to understand the pathophysiology of bone loss and vascular calcification during renal failure and how these conditions can be treated pharmacologically.
