HPC-facilitated modeling of bone may be key to helping those affected by bone disease

Apr 19, 2016

Professor Iwona Jasiuk has spent the past 10 years studying bones to understand why bones break and to assess bone quality. While her research has been looking at the problem both experimentally and computationally, she is currently focusing on the use of high scale computations to model bone by using patient specific medical images. "If we can understand better why bones break due to bone diseases, then we can design a better treatment or diagnose disease earlier, or we can prevent disease-related factors or we can assess effectiveness of treatments," Jasiuk says. By finding the differences between bone affected by disease and normal bone, she may find the key to helping people with osteoporosis.
