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.
