The Minerva Center for Calcium and Bone Metabolism

The Minerva Center for Calcium and Bone Metabolism promotes research in calcium and bone metabolism. The research at the center is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms by which the hormones that control serum calcium and bone strength are regulated. The hormones involved are the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and a vitamin D product. The diseases with major disturbances in the homeostasis of calcium and bone are chronic renal failure and osteoporosis.
