TO OUR LAB
Skeletal mobility is largely dependent on the function of our joints. The thin hyaline cartilage layer covering our bones form cushions that allow us to comfortably perform all types of physical activities. Aside from these functions, healthy cartilage protects bones from erosion, by functioning as a shock absorber during moderate or intense activity. Our lab is exploring the myriad roles of Sirtuins in Cartilage biology, during aging and skeletal development.
