About

As populations in the developing world age, the need for bone strengthening therapies is rapidly increasing. Traditional therapies include both pharmacological intervention and exercise routines. Additional therapeutic tools which lack undesirable side effects and that can be administered to immobile patients are, however, desperately needed. The Hiroki laboratory has designed a mechanical device that stimulates bone strengthening. Present efforts are devoted to understanding the molecular basis for that bone strengthening.
