Postdoctoral fellow Dr. Natalie Wee presents at ASBMR

Dr. Wee was selected for a podium presentation for her work entitled “Shared autonomic pathways connect bone marrow and peripheral adipose tissues across the central neuraxis”. She presented during the session on ‘Bone-Lipid Connections’ at the recent 2019 ASBMR meeting. This work was also recently accepted for publication in Frontiers in Endocrinology. Congratulations Natalie!

Congratulations and farewell to Dr. Craft

Dr. Craft has worked with us since the founding of the lab in 2016 and her contributions have helped to shape the lab into what it is today. We are thankful for her science and her leadership during the past few years. We wish her all the best as she transitions into her new career!

Peripheral Neuropathy as a Component of Diabetic Skeletal Disease

The goal of this review is to explore clinical associations between peripheral neuropathy and diabetic bone disease and to discuss how nerve dysfunction may contribute to dysregulation of bone metabolism, reduced bone quality, and fracture risk. In addition, we address therapeutic and experimental considerations to guide patient care and future research evaluating the emerging relationship […]

Madelyn Lorenz and Alec Beeve present at ISAN 2019

Members of the lab recently attended the 11th Congress of the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience to share their science with other SPARC investigators and the autonomic neuroscience community. The lab presented two posters including “Nerves of the Bone: Foundational Neuroanatomical Mapping of Skeletal Nerves from Bone to Brain” (Lorenz) and “Acute and chronic responses […]

Exploiting Self-Capacitances for Wireless Power Transfer.

Conventional approaches for wireless power transfer rely on the mutual coupling (near-field or far-field) between the transmitter and receiver transducers. In this paper, we show that when the operational power-budget requirements are in the order of microwatts, a self-capacitance (SC)-based power delivery has significant advantages in terms of the power transfer-efficiency, receiver form-factor, and system […]

Jennifer Brazill begins T32 fellowship

Dr. Jennifer Brazill, a post-doctoral fellow with previous training in neurobiology, was appointed to the Skeletal Disorders Training Program T32 in the Division of Bone & Mineral Diseases at Washington University. For her fellowship, Dr. Brazill will study the physiologic integration of the neural and musculoskeletal systems in states of health and diabetes.
