Science and Technology

Our discovery of novel osteogenic oxysterol compounds that target multipotent mesenchymal cells, including mesenchymal stem cells, to induce the formation of bone and bone forming osteoblasts in vitro and in vivo, is leading the new field of Oxysterol Therapeutics®. We are focused on characterizing the unique role of lipids in regulating normal physiology and disease, as well as the interactions of lipids and proteins, in the human body, and then capitalizing on these characteristics for therapeutic purposes.
