Engineering of Bone to Prevent Osteoporosis Research Group
Main goal of our research is to find a solution for bone diseases in elderly population, such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Our research is aiming at multidisciplinary collaborations between medicine, cell biology and materials science.
- Bio-inspired biomaterials to enhance bone regeneration through the manipulation of bone cells (osteoblasts, osteocytes and osteoclasts)
- New parameters for the evaluation of bone quality using knowledge of materials science
- Mechanism of osteolysis in aseptic loosening
- Engineering of bone to prevent osteoporosis
