Research

Our research focus is on understanding mechanisms and improving therapies for bone degenerative conditions, including osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. We study the role of bone mineralization and bone microarchitectural development contributing to bone quality and providing bone strength. Our research group uses state-of-the-art medical imaging technologies to provide an understanding of the mechanisms related to bone loss, often by performing longitudinal analyses. In addition to our research goals, we have developed several custom analysis tools and techniques. These tools are applied in our preclinical (animal) and clinical laboratories, enabling our research group to draw strength from the controlled settings of our preclinical studies and translate that knowledge effectively into a clinical setting.   Animation of bones in the human hand.
