Marjorie, Leah, and Ron to present at the 2014 ASMBR Annual Meeting

Congrats to Leah1 and Marjorie, who will be presenting their abstracts at the upcoming 2014 ASBMR Annual Meeting in Houston!

Leah1’s abstract is entitled “Sensory Neuron Differentiation Enhances Osteoblast Differentiation Through Soluble Factors”, and describes the development of a novel cell culture model of sensory neuron/bone cell interactions:

Marjorie’s abstract describes a collaborative project with Joaquin Lugo’s lab at Baylor University is entitled “Brain-Specific PTEN Deletion Induces Abnormal Skeletal Activity in Mice”, and explores the role of cortical brain neurons in regulating skeletal activity.

Ron will also be presenting two abstracts. The first, entitled “Cross-Species Transcriptomic Analysis Reveals Conserved Osteogenic Signatures During Zebrafish and Rat Bone Regeneration” describes a collaborative project with Rick Sumner and Amarjit Viridi at Rush University in which we are exploring the potential utility of the regenerating zebrafish fin as rapid genetic platform for identifying conserved gene regulatory networks underlying mammalian osteogenesis. The second, entitled “Rotopol and MicroCT Imaging in the Regenerating Zebrafish Fin for BMD Therapeutic Discovery”, describes our ongoing collaboration with Werner Kaminsky in the Department of Chemistry in which we are developing Rotopol imaging-based modalities for high-throughput bone mineralization imaging in the regenerating zebrafish fin.
