Emerging Insights into the Role of the SkeletonGenetic Engineering & Biotechnology NewsMay 7, 2012
Charles River Senior Scientific Director Susan Y. Smith discussed the skeleton’s function in human physiology in Emerging Insights into the Role of the Skeleton, featured in a recent edition of GEN. “We lose weight: we lose bone; we build muscle: we build bone; we become diabetic: bones become fragile,” wrote Smith. “Bone fragility and treating the consequences of fracture is a major public health concern costing millions of annual tax dollars, underscoring the need to ensure that nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals are safe or beneficial for the skeleton.”
