  • Restoring the Responsiveness of Aged Bone to Mechanical Loading



Reduced mechanoresponsiveness is a central feature of skeletal aging. My current research is focused on restoring this mechanoresponsiveness in aged bone. Aim 1 tests rescue interventions to restore the loading-induced bone formation response in aged mice. Aim 2 uses bulk RNA-seq and proteomics to determine differences between the young and aged loading responses, with the ultimate goal of identifying additional rescue targets.
