Effects of Diabetes and Weight Loss on Bone Development.
My lab’s research focus is the characterization of bone quality in disease states affecting the skeleton using high-resolution imaging techniques. I will personally be contributing to the study NIH-funded study of the impact of weight loss on skeletal structure and strength by analyzing HR-pQCT data. I will be responsible for segmenting and analyzing the CT scans that have been obtained over the past years. This musculoskeletal research will open a new window for researchers and allow clinicians to understand and treat their patients better.
