Bone and Joint Disease, Development and Function 
Research at PCOM

Diseases of bone and cartilage are progressive and debilitating. Treatments mainly focus on symptomatic relief. Eventually patients may require joint replacement.

Our researchers study the development, morphology and function of the skeletal system and related disease processes, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and peri-prosthetic infection. Their work has identified novel targets for the development of drugs that may prevent or limit bone and joint degeneration.
