The work performed in the Bone Metabolism and Repair group, led by Chantal Chenu, aims at investigating the regulatory and repair mechanisms of bone.
Chantal has a long standing interest in the role of the nervous system in the control of bone turnover and repair. Her work currently focuses on the mechanisms of bone pain, particularly after fractures and skeletal diseases. She is also interested in the mechanisms of bone fragility in type 2 diabetes. She uses mouse models of fracture, skeletal diseases and type 2 diabetes as well as primary bone cell cultures.
