Congratulation to successful application of joint research proposal regarding the role of miR-214 in regulating osteoblastic bone formation from the IBTS, Department of Chemistry in the HKBU.

July 17, 2014

Interdisciplinary Research Matching Scheme of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has funded a joint research proposal from Institute of Integrated Bioinformedicine and Translational Science (IBTS) and Departmentof Biology in the HKBU. The project is titled “Role of miR-214 from osteoclast in regulating osteoblastic bone formation”. The amount approved for this project (RC-IRMS/13-14/02) is HKD 2,981,576. Emerging evidences indicate that microRNAs have important roles in regulating osteogenic differentiation and bone formation. Previous research results lead to the hypothesis that miR-214 from osteoclast could play an important role ininhibiting osteoblastic bone formation. This joint project is to address thishypothesis. Principal Investigators of this project are Dr. Zhang Ge from the the IBTS, School of Chinese Medicine and Prof. Wong Chris Kong-Chu from Department of biology, respectively.
