Structural and Genetic Research of the Bone

Current research activity includes:

  1. microstructural analyses of bone tissue and molecular analyses on cultivated bone cells after exposure to various hazardous substances, drugs, as well as unprocessed or processed food ingredients,
  2. identification of genes that affect bone structure and function in an attempt to use them to the risk of bone loss and osteoporosis development prediction, as well as to determine osteoporosis treatment efficacy, 
  3. structural and molecular analyses of historical bones to identify the biological species, and pathologies or to determine the age of the individual at the time of death, 
  4. application of research results and technologies (2D and 3D imaging, cell cultivation, gene expression) in practice for the testing of new medicaments for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and diabetes, genetic testing of the efficacy of osteoporosis treatment, and structural analyses for archaeozoology and forensic sciences.
