Bone Lab wins “ASBMR Best Translational Abstract Award”


Dresden, 25.09.2019

The ASBMR Most Outstanding Abstract Award is given to the highest scoring translational abstract submitted for presentation at the ASBMR Annual Meeting. In the abstract we show that T cell-derived Dkk1 controls bone remodeling in adult mice and that it contributes to bone loss induced by estrogen deficiency. This work demonstrates that bone loss after menopause may not only be mediated via direct actions on bone cells, but also via actions on other cell types, such as T cells. Congratulations, Martina!
