Department > Basic Science and Craniofacial Biology

Craniofacial & Bone Biology Research

Research projects include the study of structure of proteins involved in mineralization, scanning EM structure of teeth and bone, endocrine regulation of bones and cartilage, and transcriptional regulation of the cells and genes in bone and cartilage. Members of the department have close collaborations with the bone and cartilage research group in Biomaterials at NYU College of Dentistry and also with the NYU School of Medicine.

Faculty involved in craniofacial & bone biology research include:

Center for Skeletal and Craniofacial Biology (CSCB)

The Center was established to enhance and coordinate the efforts of NYU clinicians, scientists and clinician scientists who work in different aspects of craniofacial and musculoskeletal biology with the ultimate goal to develop novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of craniofacial disorders and musculoskeletal diseases. The mission of the Center is to raise the tempo of research into diseases which affect craniofacial development and the skeleton leading to new knowledge, resulting in improving and new treatments for these diseases.
