Invited speakers

 

 

Dr Ralf H. Adams (Mack Planck Institute for molecular biomedicine, Germany)
  • Ralf Adams and his team seek to elucidate the mechanisms controlling the formation and regulation of the blood vessels network, both in the healthy and the diseased organism. More…
Dr Clemens Bergwitz (Yale School of Medicine, USA)
  • Clemens Bergwitz’s research focuses on inborn errors of phosphate metabolism and the endocrine regulation of phosphate homeostasis with emphasis on the metabolic and homeostatic effects of phosphate. More…
Dr Kristina Boström (UCLA Molecular Biology Institute, Los Angeles, USA)
  • The overall goal of Kristina Boström’s lab is to understand the role of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), and their inhibitors and receptors in vascular disease such as atherosclerosis, vascular calcification, diabetic vascular disease and arteriovenous malformations. More…
Dr Michael Briggs (Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University, Newcastle, UK)
  • The laboratory of Michael Briggs is focused on elucidating the mechanisms underlying skeletal dysplasias with a specific focus on understanding the role of ER stress and UPR in endochondral ossification. More…
Dr Will Cawthorn (The University of Edinburgh, UK)
  • Will Cawthorn studies the formation and function of bone marrow adipose tissue, a major component of human bone marrow that might directly impact health and disease. More…
Dr Colin Farquharson (Roslin Institute, Edinburgh, UK)
  • Colin Farquharson’s research programme is focused on the fundamental/translational mechanisms underpinning bone growth and development with a specific focus on the genetic and endocrine control of skeletal development. More…
Dr Marie-Hélène Lafage-Proust (INSERM U1059 SAINBIOSE, St Etienne, France)
  • Marie-Hélène Lafage-Proust is an internationally recognized expert in bone vascularisation with a particular expertise for quantitative assessment of the bone vasculature in rodents using 3D microtomography imaging of the bone vessel network. More…
Dr Benjamin Ory (INSERM U1238 Phy-Os, Nantes, France)
  • Benjamin Ory’s research programme is dedicated to the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms which are involved in primary bone tumors and regulation of bone mineralization. More…
Dr Franck Oury (INSERM U1151 Necker-Enfants Malades Institute, Paris, France)
  • Well known for his work on osteocalcin, the main focus Franck Oury’s team is now to investigate the roles played by hormonal factors on the regulation of brain cognitive functions in normal, pathological and aging conditions. More…
