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.

Bone Lab participates in the Charity “Kinder helfen Kindern”


Dresden, 18.11.2019

Not all children are fortunate enough to grow up in a prosperous country like Germany or Austria. That´s why we support “Kinder helfen Kindern by ADRA Deutschland e.v.” again, which provides Christmas presents to children in Macedonia and Albania, who may never have received Christmas presents before. We hope our little gifts bring joy to the children and their families and put a smile on their face because children are the future of our world!   www.kinder-helfen-kindern.org

Bone Lab wins “ASBMR Best Translational Abstract Award”


Dresden, 25.09.2019

The ASBMR Most Outstanding Abstract Award is given to the highest scoring translational abstract submitted for presentation at the ASBMR Annual Meeting. In the abstract we show that T cell-derived Dkk1 controls bone remodeling in adult mice and that it contributes to bone loss induced by estrogen deficiency. This work demonstrates that bone loss after menopause may not only be mediated via direct actions on bone cells, but also via actions on other cell types, such as T cells. Congratulations, Martina!


Two international experts providing insights into MSC epigenetics and iron metabolism

The Bone Lab thanks Laura Silvestri from the Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan, Italy and Alexander Rauch from the University of Southern Denmark for their fantastic talks on iron metabolism and the control of hepcidin expression and the epigenetic control of MSC differentiation into osteoblasts and adipocytes. We learned a lot and are looking forward to further collaborations!
