NIDCR News 2023

For 25 years, NIDCR scientists have been looking for better ways to treat fibrous dysplasia/McCune-Albright syndrome, a rare disorder of the bones, skin, and endocrine system.
The COVID-19 pandemic thrust NIDCR science into the spotlight. Research on virus biology, detection methods, and more could ready us for future pandemics.

What shapes our faces? Decades’ worth of NIDCR research is enabling scientists to crack the code of facial appearance and craniofacial conditions.

NIDCR scientists found that mice lacking a protein called biglycan developed weak bones that healed poorly from fractures. The findings could inform strategies to better repair fractures and treat disorders marked by bone loss, such as osteoporosis.
