Erica Scheller, DDS, PhD

Associate Professor, Medicine

The Neuroskeletal Biology Laboratory (NSBL, Scheller Lab) was founded in 2016 and is part of the Musculoskeletal Research Center (MRC) and Division of Bone and Mineral Diseases at Washington University. The laboratory consists of a mix of technicians, graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, clinical fellows and undergraduate researchers. Our laboratory applies concepts from cell biology, physiology, and bioengineering to the study of neurometabolism and neuroskeletal biology. We use rodent models, advanced imaging tools, molecular biology, behavioral assays, etc. Our basic research models are aligned with our clinical studies in the areas of diabetes, metabolism, and bone health.
