Ines P. Perpetuo
I am currently a Postdoctoral researcher with Michael Doube in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences Department at the Royal Veterinary College, University of London. My work involves activity assays of osteoblasts and osteoclasts isolated and cultured from animals ranging in size from mouse to elephant.
My main focus of research is bone cell biology - differentiation from precursors and activity. I am also interested in understanding osteoclast and osteoblast differentiation and activity, bone resorption and bone formation coupling, inflammation and its implications in bone and other tissues and bone biology as a whole.
I was a PhD student at the Rheumatology Research Unit at Instituto de Medicina Molecular in Lisbon working on osteoclast differentiation and activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.
