Using existing skeletal imaging data from the Framingham Osteoporosis Study, the student will work with a team of investigators to identify lifestyle and genetic factors related to bone microarchitecture.
The Framingham Osteoporosis Study is collecting high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) scans on members of the Framingham Study Offspring cohort. These scans provide measurements of volumetric bone density of cortical and trabecular compartments, microarchitecture, including cortical porosity, and can be used to derive micro finite element analysis. Thus there are many measures which provide unique insights into bone strength that are not available using any other technique. The student will learn about the imaging technique itself and then will actually perform data analyses to relate lifestyle and genetic factors to these measures. This will lead to one or more publications in peer review journals. Some prior knowledge of biomechanical engineering principles and/or statistical data analysis would be useful background skills, as would experience with scientific writing.
