The Musculoskeletal Medicine: Adults and Pediatrics Team

The Musculoskeletal Medicine: Adults and Pediatrics team includes both clinicians and researchers from several disciplines. Members have a broad focus on a range of genetic and acquired musculoskeletal diseases affecting individuals across their lifespan from childhood through adulthood. Team members investigate genetic conditions such as X-linked hypophosphatemia, osteogenesis imperfecta and osteopetrosis, along with normal skeletal development and musculoskeletal complications of a variety of chronic diseases including diabetes, obesity and kidney disease, as well as diseases of aging including sarcopenia and osteoporosis. Team members employ a variety of research methodologies including clinical trials, animal and cell models, genomic, metabolic and proteomic techniques, precision health and informatics to assess disease risk and treatment response.
