Keck School of Medicine of USC has received a $2.2 million NIH grant to fund research on gene therapy that could help manage challenging bone repairs
A series of studies at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine found that steroid drugs, known for inducing bone loss with prolonged use, actually help suppress a molecule that's key to the rapid bone loss process.
