Academic Focus

Dr. Martin research focuses on the regulation of bone and mineral metabolism. The general focus of her lab is the regulation of osteocyte-derived molecules and their impact on bone, renal and cardiac health. She is particularly interested in the bone ECM protein DMP1 and its role in diseases associated with excessive production of the skeletal hormone FGF23. Her lab recently established the prevention of FGF23-associated cardiac hypertrophy by improving DMP1 signaling in mice with chronic kidney...[Read full text]Dr. Martin research focuses on the regulation of bone and mineral metabolism.
