Bone Resorption; Endocrinology; Lactation
Dr. Ardeshirpour is interested in bone and mineral metabolism during lactation and after weaning. Her specific area of interest is identification of the systemic factors and signals that influence the dynamics and rate of bone turnover (bone formation and resorption) during this transitional period.
