Washington University

I am a Professor of Orthopedics and Cell Biology & Physiology at Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis, MO. My research interests center on interrogating cellular and molecular mechanism of inflammation in the skeletal system and cross talk with metabolic pathways. Specifically, we are focused on deciphering the role of NF-kB signaling pathway in bone cells under physiologic and pathologic degenerative conditions and reprogramming of metabolic pathways. Our goal is to identify critical pathway junctures for therapeutic intervention.
