Prof. Dr. Aline Bozec hopes that her project will provide insights into local bone metabolism, in particular how osteocyte death is regulated at a molecular level. Osteocytes are long-living cells within the bone matrix and are by far the most common cells in bones. With her project, she aims to characterise the connections between osteocyte death and the molecular connection between osteocyte death and the stimulation of bone-destroying cells in conjunction with local bone diseases such as fractures, osteonecrosis and arthritis.
