He serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism as well as Endocrine. His special interest is within clinical and translational endocrinology, and in particular in classical endocrine diseases, such as Acromegaly and Cushing’s, often studying bone as target tissues for clinical activity. A major interest has been devoted to metabolic bone disorders, other than postmenopausal osteoporosis, as illustrated by his work for The Scandinavian Investigation of Primary Hyperparathyroidism. He has a deep interest in the control of bone remodeling as seen in the classical endocrine and inherited metabolic diseases (like Human Osteopetrosis and High Bone Mass Phenotypes), and also in relation to solid organ transplantation. As such, he has published more than 280 papers in international, peer reviewed journals and has been a mentor of more than 20 doctoral thesis projects.
