Skeletal Biology and Regeneration Graduate Program

UConn Musculoskeletal Institute

My laboratory is broadly interested in osteochondral progenitor cell biology and mechanisms of bone regeneration. Housed in the UConn Musculoskeletal Institute, we are currently using molecular/genetic and surgical techniques in zebrafish to understand the contextual regulation of the osteoblast lineage by Notch signaling. I direct the UConn Health Microtomography (µCT) Imaging Core Facility and participate in the Skeletal Biology and Regeneration Program.
