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.
