The Bone Lab in Dresden aims to better understand the underlying mechanisms of bone loss in metabolic, inflammatory, and hematological diseases as well as in the bone and cancer dialogue. We employ state-of-the-art molecular and cell biology techniques, imaging modalities, and translational animal models of human bone diseases.

Our mission is to explore bone biology to develop improved therapies for patients.
