The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. Gerard Karsenty, the Paul A. Marks M.D., Professor and Chair of the Department of Genetics and Development at Columbia University Medical Center, New York City.
Dr. Karsenty's main interest is how organs interact with one another to regulate vertebrates' various physiological functions. His research focuses on bone and, through the use of genetics, he has discovered that this organ, in addition to making bone, has remarkable endocrine functions that include the regulation of insulin secretion, glucose homeostasis, adaptation to exercise, testosterone production and male fertility, synthesis of neurotransmitters and cognitive functions. His laboratory has also identified a receptor for osteocalcin in muscle, testes and pancreas, which has prompted investigation into a possible novel function of osteocalcin.
The GSIG was created to discuss and explore the complex relationships between the biology of aging and the biology of diseases and conditions that are of interest to various institutes and centers across the NIH.
