Understanding Bone & Mitochondrial Metabolism

Mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into bone building cells (osteoblasts) or fat cells.  We study the role of energy metabolism and bioenergetics in controlling cell fate. We studied the bioenergetic pathways during osteoblast and adipocyte differentiation in vitro and identified a specific metabolic signature when differentiation occurs.
