Aging and Bone Health

In this webinar, Dr. Joy Wu will review the pathophysiology of bone loss with aging, in particular the imbalance between bone formation by osteoblasts and bone resorption by osteoclasts. She will discuss stem cell sources of osteoblasts, anabolic signaling pathways, and targeting inflammation and senescence.
