Principal duties and responsibilities
The Wein laboratory investigates molecular mechanisms controlling the development and function of osteocytes, cells with a central role in orchestrating bone homeostasis. We employ wide-ranging techniques to study osteocyte biology in vitro and in vivo.
A major focus of the laboratory is to understand the intracellular signaling system used by parathyroid hormone (PTH) on osteocytes. These studies will lead to an improved understanding of skeletal responses to PTH, and have important implications for the treatment of osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease.
