|Dr. Jane Lian
On Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m., Dr. Jane Lian will
speak on “New Dimensions of Transcriptional Control
in the Skeleton,” in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10.
Her talk is part of NIDCR’s seminar series “From Basic
Research to Therapy—The Latest Frontier.”
Lian is a leader in the fields of bone biology and connective
tissue disorders. Her work has contributed to
our current understanding of the molecular events that
control normal and abnormal skeletal development and
cancer metastasis to bone. She will discuss her recent research targeting transcriptional
and epigenetic factors as well as microRNAs for treating conditions
such as osteoporosis and genetic disorders that affect craniofacial bone.
Lian is a professor of cell biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical
School. She earned a Ph.D. from Boston University and did postdoctoral
training at NIDCR and Harvard Medical School. Her research has been recognized
by many awards including a Kappa Delta Award from the American
Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the William Neuman Award from the
American Society for Bone and Mineral Research that she shared with Dr.
Gary Stein. She also serves on the research advisory board of the Shriners
Hospitals for Children.
