Gordon Research Conference
Bones and Teeth: The Life of the Skeleton from Embryonic Development to Aging
February 2-7, 2020
Galveston, TX, US
Chair: Vicki Rosen
Vice Chair: Ernestina Schipani
The theme of the 2020 Bones and Teeth GRC is “The Life of the Skeleton”. Starting with an introduction to signaling circuits, stem cells, and ECM, we examine the events directing skeletal homeostasis in chronological order, and at specific temporal inflection points compare and contrast the appendicular, axial and craniofacial skeletal responses. We also discuss emerging technologies that allow us to investigate skeletal biology in new ways, and end our meeting by focusing on whether repair/regeneration of adult skeletal tissues is a return to principles that govern embryonic skeletal development, or representative of a new stage of skeletal biology, a controversial topic vital to development of successful therapeutic approaches in the adult skeleton.
