Genetic Regulation of Bone Mineral Density

21st May 2024, 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Join MRC Harwell for a guest lecture by Dr Cheryl Ackert-Bicknell, PhD, on the topic of Genetic Regulation of Bone Mineral Density.

Dr Ackert-Bicknell is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, Department of Orthopedics. Her research focuses on genetic regulation of bone mass, with an emphasis on bone formation and strength, to improve understanding of both the genetic basis of bone disease and the response of bone to environmental variables.

Come along to hear how both forward and reverse genetics techniques can uncover critical insights into bone quality in pre-clinical disease models.
