Bone Lab Dresden
Maintaining lifelong bone health remains a challenge. Therefore, our team works on several research projects linking bone research with diabetes, hematology, immunology, endocrinology, oncology, and materials science. Through our research, we expect to translate bone discoveries into more effective therapies for patients.

Research Blog & News
Our PhD student Juliane Colditz has created a cartoon that creatively explains the importance of the mouse as an animal model in bone research. Young and old get entertaining explained, what is hidden behind diseases such as osteoporosis and bone cancer and how the research contributes to healing. Juliane even won a prize in a video competition. Congratulations!
New Years Greetings

Biomarkers to earlier recognize Bone Metastases
A team of bone and cancer specialists from Essen and Dresden have identified two biomarkers (RANKL and OPG) in a study of bone metabolism that can better predict the course of breast cancer over a ten-year period. The team hopes that the discovery will lead to a more precise risk assessment regarding personalized therapies, with the aim of delaying the progression of the disease. The results of their study were published in the journal Clinical Cancer Research (doi: 10.1158 / 1078-0432.CCR-18-2482).
