As we age, every stumble or fall comes with a risk—a risk that is even greater for those ten million people in the U.S. who have osteoporosis, a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass, poor bone quality and fractures.

Dr. Malcolm Whitman, PHD87, HSDM professor of developmental biology, and Tracy Keller, SM87, PHD96, an instructor in the Department of Developmental Biology, have identified a chemical compound based on an active ingredient in the root of the blue evergreen hydrangea (Dichroa febrifuga), that could lead to treatment of chronic fibrotic and autoimmune diseases. The root has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Whitman and Keller identified the mechanism of action, halofuginone (HF), found within the root.
