Henry Ford Bone & Joint Center

The Mechanobiology section is focused on understanding how mechanical forces regulate specific cell-signaling mechanisms, and how these mechanisms are used by individual cell-types to modify the material properties and mechanical behavior of bone. Ongoing research is currently investigating how exercise, as a form of mechanical loading, can be used to improve bone adaptation as a treatment and prevention strategy for musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoporosis.
