Matthew T. Drake, M.D., Ph.D., studies bone loss across both normal and disease states. Specifically, Dr. Drake is interested in the mechanisms underlying age-related bone loss and the skeletal microarchitectural changes that accompany this condition. Additionally, he is working toward a better understanding of the effect of cancer on the skeleton, and particularly of the mechanisms at the root of skeletal metastasis and malignancy-associated bone loss.
The long-term aim of Dr. Drake's research is to improve understanding of how both normal aging and the presence of malignancies can lead to the softening or destruction of bone mass, with the ultimate goal of contributing to new or improved methods for the prevention and treatment of bone loss.
