Summary

This project will investigate the use of biological agents in stimulating bone growth and inhibiting bone resorption.

Supervisor(s)

Professor Hala Zreiqat

Research Location

Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering

Program Type

N/A

Synopsis

There are many orthopaedic, developmental and pathological conditions that require the protection of existing bone and the building of new bone. Animal models of generalised or local bone loss will be developed for the screening and evaluation of factors Some aspects of this work may be conducted with biologically modified biomaterials in collaboration with Dr Hala Zreiqat.
