Webinar Bone, Muscle & Beyond: Bone and muscle cross talk in bone repair
Date & Time: 20 October 2022, 4 pm CET
Featuring Céline Coltnot and Moderated by Jessica Pepe
- 5 min welcome & introductions
- 35 min presentation
- 20 min Q&A
Followed by a Coffee Shop
During this webinar, the speaker will review:
- The ability to repair itself is an important function of adult bone and is dependent on the proliferation and differentiation of skeletal stem/progenitor cells.
- The contribution of local versus systemic sources of skeletal stem cells.
- To elucidate the mechanisms of stem cell activation in their complex tissue environment in development, disease and repair.
Costs: Live webinar is free for ECTS members and non-members, but a registration is required. Recordings are accessible to ECTS members only.
About the Speaker
I am currently a Director of Research, DR2 INSERM, at Mondor Institute for Biomedical Research, Créteil. I completed my PhD in Paris in 1998 and my postdoctoral training at University of California, San Francisco where I became Assistant Professor until 2010. My research concentrates on the biology of skeletal stem cells that are the basis for the high regenerative capacities of skeletal tissues and that are potentially deficient in various musculoskeletal diseases and disorders. I received continuous funding since 2005 from NIH, European Marie Curie Program and the French National Research Agency. The projects of my research team aim to elucidate the mechanisms of stem cell activation in their complex tissue environment in development, disease and repair employing genetic mouse models, genomics and cellular approaches. We focus on the periosteum, the tissue at the outer surface of bone and skeletal muscle adjacent to bone, that also plays essential roles in bone regeneration. The ATIP-AVENIR funding was key for us to accomplish the characterization skeletal stem cells within periosteum. These results are now the bases for several other projects further exploring periosteum functions in bone repair and its interactions with skeletal muscle, the vasculature and the nervous system.
