The study on male osteoporosis include a collaborative study with outside investigators is examining the utility of lateral spine bone densitometry in identifying men with osteoporosis and low trauma fractures.

Hypophosphatemic disorders, including X-link hypophosphatemic rickets and tumor-induced osteomalacia. My ongoing research study, in collaboration with Dr. L Darryl Quarles at the University of Kansas, seeks to further confirm and extend our understanding of the role of FGF-23 in human disorders of phosphate homeostasis, including patients with chronic kidney disease. Pending studies include primary and sub-investigator directed Phase 1 / 2 first in human studies examining the effects of a monoclonal antibody and enzyme replacement therapy for X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets and hypophosphatasia, respectively.
