Description: Bone biology is an established area of research and education, but remarkably there is no accessible graduate level appropriate text or reference focused specifically on the biology of the skeletal system. Basic and Applied Bone Biology fills this gap. This book provides an overview of skeletal biology from the molecular level to the organ level, including cellular control, interaction and response; adaptive responses to various external stimuli; the interaction of the skeletal system with other metabolic processes in the body, and the effect of various disease processes on the skeleton. The book also includes chapters that address how the skeleton can be evaluated through the use of various imaging technologies, biomechanical testing, histomorphometric analysis, and the use of genetically-modified animal models. Presents an in-depth overview of skeletal biology from the molecular to the organ levelOffers "refresher" level content for clinicians or researchers outside their areas of expertiseBoasts editors and many chapter authors from Indiana and Purdue Universities, two of the broadest and deepest programs in skeletal biology in the US; other chapter authors include clinician scientists from pharmaceutical companies which apply the basics of bone biology
