Bone and Connective Tissues/Tissue Engineering

Bone and other connective tissues are important dynamic tissues whose remodeling influences craniofacial development and structure. Studies are conducted in the department on the cellular and molecular aspects of these tissues, and the mechanism of action of many hormones and immunological agents affecting them.

Tissue engineering aspects of this work include development of materials and cellular systems to allow for enhancement of function and repair of bone and connective tissue defects.
