Genetic Skeletal Disease

Summer students are paired with postdoctoral fellows. Students are given a focused, but important, question related to specific skeletal diseases that need to be addressed scientifically. Examples of such questions include the following: Can the accuracy of genetic or biochemical testing for the disease be improved? Can a cell biologic or animal model of the disease be used to better understand the pathophysiology of the human disease? Can a rare genetic disease provide fundamental insights into pathologic processes that give rise to more common diseases?
