Dr. Oursler's Cell Biology of Bone Lab at Mayo Clinic studies the roles of osteoclasts in bone formation, with a goal of developing more-effective therapies to overcome problems associated with osteoporosis, osteopenia and other bone problems.
By advancing knowledge about the process of bone formation, the Cell Biology of Bone Lab is setting the stage to develop better ways to prevent or treat bone loss, bone pain and bone fractures.
Research projects include osteoclast stimulation, Wnt proteins in the bone microenvironment, PODXL and bone formation, and bone alterations in aging.
Contact Dr. Oursler about her research on osteoclast stimulation, Wnt proteins, bone-forming osteoblasts, osteopenia, bone loss, bone fractures and bone formation.
