Advanced School BONE CELL AND TISSUE MECHANICS

When: 17/06/2024 - 21/06/2024
Where: Udine, Italy and Online
The course will review bone cell and tissue mechanics at all three commonly distinguished levels of structural organization: the bone organ, tissue and cell levels; including multidisciplinary topics such as bone biology, imaging and computational modeling

Bone is a remarkable material: it is strong yet lightweight, can adapt itself to changes in mechanical loading, lasts for a lifetime and can repair itself after a fracture. However, these repair mechanisms can be inhibited by bone disease and aging.

Although biology has revealed many secrets of how bone cells can form and remove bone tissue, the mechanisms that control these processes, and the role of mechanical loading in this, are still not well understood, and therefore there is more work to be done to optimize pharmaceuticals, physiotherapy, medical devices and surgical techniques to improve bone repair.

The goal of this course is to provide state-of-the-art information on this topic. To do so, the course will review bone cell and tissue mechanics at all three commonly distinguished levels of structural organization: the bone organ, tissue and cell levels; including multidisciplinary topics such as bone biology, imaging and computational modeling.

Limited spots are available for on-site attendance and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Deadline for online application is June 6, 2024.
