Congratulations to Shannon Emerzian on her recent publication in Bone entitled: “Effects of ex vivo ionizing radiation on collagen structure and whole-bone mechanical properties of mouse vertebrae.” In a collaboration with lab alum Dr. Megan Pendleton, this work demonstrated that reductions in bone compressive monotonic strength and fatigue life due to ex vivo ionizing radiation […]
Congratulations to Tongge Wu for passing his qualifying exam and advancing to PhD Candidacy!
At Saghi Sadoughi’s exit seminar today, she presented her dissertation work on the “Effect of Variations in Tissue-Level Ductility on Human Vertebral Strength.” In the fall, Saghi will join the Bone Quality Research Lab at UCSF as a postdoctoral researcher. Congratulations Dr. Sadoughi!!
