The lab works on the zebrafish skeletal system. We're particularly interested in cartilage and bone homeostasis, and how the properties of the cartilage matrix affect osteoblast differentiation. We are using the zebrafish as a model for osteoarthritis, a joint disease which affects tens of millions of people worldwide, looking at the underlying genetic casuses and how these impact on joint homeostasis.
