Dr. Chiu is interested in delineating the molecular mechanisms underlying DC-STAMP-mediated bone homeostasis by optogenetic, musculoskeletal, and immunological approaches. Through collaborations with several principal investigators at the University of Rochester, Dr. Chiu is exploring various aspects of bone research including bone homeostasis through coordination between bone-resorbing osteoclasts (OC) and bone-synthesizing osteoblasts (OB), molecular mechanisms underlying pathological bone damages, and signaling required for the survival, differentiation, and function of OC.
