Postdoctoral Research Associate, Department of Medicine; Bone Research Group
I am an orthopaedic surgeon, and my major is osteoporosis as well as rheumatology in Japan. My current concern is as to bone formation. From our previous analysis, I realised there was communication between blood vessels and bone tissue through the osteocytic lacuno-canalicular system. I work with Dr Ken Poole and my main research interest now is to investigate the modeling-based bone formation that does not accompany previous bone resorption as seen in remodeling site. I am also interested in medical image visualization and analysis as well as CT analysis.
