The Division of Bone and Mineral Diseases, on behalf of the Skeletal Disorders Training Program (SDTP) and the WU Musculoskeletal Research Center, is hosting a seminar series on Skeletal Biology and Pathophysiology. This lecture series will be organized on a 2-year cycle with 5-6 lectures per year, and is designed to complement courses available through the DBBS graduate training program focusing on topics that are fundamental for the formation of a skeletal biology investigator. Lectures will cover fundamental aspects of bone and mineral homeostasis, bone, cartilage and tendon biology, bone biomechanics and biomineralization, as well as biostatistical approaches and fundamental methodologies for skeletal phenotype analysis in vivo. Most of the speakers are SDTP mentors and MRC investigators; occasionally, external speakers with expertise in specific topics will be invited.

This series is being recorded, view presentations.
