Research focuses on osteoclasts and osteoblast activity in both normal and pathological states including Paget’s disease and Multiple Myeloma.

Clinical Interests:

  • Paget’s disease and Multiple Myeloma.

We are interested in the role of bone cells in normal and pathologic conditions in particular myeloma. We perform preclinical and basic studies on the molecular mechanism controlling bone cell differentiation to identify therapeutic targets for treating myeloma and paget's disease.

My interests are in understanding the role of metastatic bone disease to tumor cachexia.
