What is it about?

Our review aims to convey a broad and complex interplay between the frequently examined cells of the mesenchymal lineage -specifically adipocytes and osteoblasts- but to broaden this to include chondrocytes , as well as hematopoietic-derived osteoclasts.

Why is it important?

In seeking to build on known interplay between diverse skeletal cell populations, we ask how interactions between a multitude of cells might be attenuated with non-pharmacologic, exercise and dietary based interventions for aging related conditions like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.


Led by our fearless fellow Dr. Little-Letsinger, this review represents a unique examination of cross-talk between cells housed within the skeleton , and how exercise might reverse aspects of declines orchestrated in bone marrow. In addition to reviewing what is known, Dr. Little-Letsinger leads us through tremendous gaps and unknowns that we hope will drive novel work in the field.
