Endocrine Unit Research
Endocrine Unit Research

Research in the Endocrine Unit focuses on metabolic bone diseases and mineral metabolism and ranges from trials of novel therapies for osteoporosis to use of genetically altered mice and cell biology to understand the factors that influence calcium and phosphate metabolism.

Endocrine Unit: Bastepe Laboratory
Endocrine Unit: Bastepe Laboratory

The Bastepe Laboratory investigates the role of the GNAS locus and its gene products in physiology and disease pathogenesis.

Endocrine Unit: Bergwitz Laboratory
Endocrine Unit: Bergwitz Laboratory

Our research focuses on inborn errors of phosphate metabolism and the endocrine regulation of phosphate homeostasis with an emphasis on the metabolic and homeostatic effects of phosphate.

Endocrine Unit: Demay Laboratory
