Proteoglycans and Age-Related Bone Fragility Fractures

The objective of this project is to elucidate the role of proteoglycans in age-related deterioration of bone quality using in vivo animal models and in vitro experiments. The student(s) is expected to help the lab to conduct the experiments and process the data.

Requirements

  • Bioscience I
  • Bioscience II
  • General Chemistry I
Digital Model of Trabecular Bone

The objective of this project is to develop a digital model that is representative of real trabecular bone structures and can be used in clinical diagnosis and tissue engineering applications. The student(s) is expected to help the lab to develop the computer code and/or perform experimental analysis using 3-D printing techniques.

Requirements

  • Calculus I
  • Calculus II
  • Technical Physics I
