NWO Vidi Award : A miniature bone model

Recognition: NWOVidiScientific

The interaction between various cells within bone is still poorly understood. The goal of this project is to develop miniature bones from human cells in the laboratory. These tissues will be used to study bone turnover in healthy versus diseased bone and will consecutively be used to develop specific drug therapies.
