Center for Skeletal and Craniofacial Biology


The mission of the Center is to raise the tempo of research into diseases which affect craniofacial development and the skeleton leading to new knowledge, resulting in improving and new treatments for these diseases. The Goals of the Center are:

  • Recruit new faculty in skeletal and craniofacial biology
  • Increase collaborative and scientific interactions between all members of the Center and the University
  • Publish increased numbers of high impact papers
  • Submit NIH instrumentation grants for the Center
  • Oversee the use of Core facilities of the Center
  • Mentor junior faculty in successful research
  • Provide pilot funding for members of the Center

CSCB Seminar Series

The Seminar Series is an opportunity for members to present their research to the community. Usually held on the second Tuesday of each month, these are coordinated by Dr. Despina Sitara.

Bone Interest Group

The Bone Interest Group is hosted by the NYU-HHC Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The goal is to provide an opportunity for investigators to share ideas and develop collaborations. These are usually held on a monthly basis and are coordinated by Ms. Rosa Hsieh.

Other Events

Other events occurring at NYU and in the New York City area that may be of interest to the community.
