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 all our research projects, and we wait to translate knowledge we gain through research toward better outcomes for people.
