Mount Sinai Careers
The Zaidi Lab is NIH funded and is part of the Mount Sinai Bone Program. We use mouse models in which specific genes are selectively deleted in the adipocytes, osteoclasts, or osteoblasts. We aim to investigate their effect on fat and bone cells by cell phenotyping, in vitro and/or ex vivo functional assays. The fellow will be using histomorphometry, micro-CT, quantitative NMR, and molecular biology techniques to investigate how FSH inhibition affects adipose tissue and bone.
