The Center for Skeletal Research, funded by NIAMS P30 AR075042, will further the discovery of the causes and therapies for skeletal diseases through the provision of core facilities and other programs designed to make the work of a broad group of investigators more efficient, interdisciplinary, innovative, and interactive. By making this research more effective, advances in understanding and therapy of osteoporosis and other bone diseases will occur more quickly.
