Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Genetic studies, including genome-wide linkage and association studies, have been a main component of research strategies aiming at understanding the pathogenesis of various forms of metabolic bone diseases. In this Special Issue of Healthcare, we aim to publish review and original research papers covering recent genetic research on any type of metabolic bone diseases, either multifactorial or monogenic, carried out both in human and in animal models as well as in vitro. This research topic is focused, but not limited to, the genetics of osteoporosis, Paget’s disease of bone, osteogenesis imperfecta, osteopetrosis, rickets, and osteomalacia. We cordially invite researchers working actively in these fields to submit their original research or review manuscripts on the genetics of metabolic bone diseases to this Special Issue.

Dr. Jose M. Moran
Guest Editor
