William Horne, PhD

Dr. Bill Horne received his PhD from Boston University. His early career, at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and later at Yale University School of Medicine, focused on the investigation of cell regulatory mechanisms and cytoskeletal function in platelets and erythrocytes. In 1990, he became a research scientist in the research group of Dr. Roland Baron in the YUSM Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Horne became an instructor in the Department of Oral Medicine, Infection, and Immunity at HSDM in 2008 when the Baron group moved to the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

Fields of Interest

Dr. Horne’s research interests are the signaling mechanisms that regulate osteoclast function, particularly in response to calcitonin, and how the molecular and functional interactions of osteoclast cytoskeleton and cell attachment proteins control bone resorption by osteoclasts.
