Summary of Meeting:
This conference presents recent progress made in two relatively novel areas of skeletal biology not covered by other meetings. The first one is the cross-talk between bone, hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis. The second is the study of the various endocrine functions of bone and how their study impacts on our understanding of multiple degenerative diseases. Meetings of bone biology are traditionally dominated by the need to explain the basis and to propose treatments for the most frequent bone disease: osteoporosis. Aside from this very vivid field, these two other novel aspects of bone biology have developed in the last decade. A shared feature is that they link bone biology to multiple other organs and to other functions besides making bones. This conference showcases the many advances made in these two aspects of skeleton biology and how these developments have enriched our understanding of the pathogenesis of multiple degenerative diseases affecting the bone marrow, energy metabolism or the brain. Because of its very nature, this conference brings together investigators from different fields rarely afforded an opportunity to meet.
