New fundings of SFR

SFR (Société Française de Rhumatologie) has decided to finance 2 RMeS projects : METABONE, led by Dr Sarah Beck-Cormier which aims to understand the role of the PiT2/SLC20A2 protein in bone pathologies associated with metabolic abnormalities & SPHERODISC led by Dr Anne CAMUS. This project aims to characterize the cellular interactions regulating disc tissue homeostasis in a human stem cell-derived organoid model. These investigations will contribute to the discovery of symptom-modifying factors or new therapeutic targets and in the long term to the emergence of innovative treatments that should bring strong benefits to patient with back pain and age-related intervertebral disc diseases.
