|Multiscale and multimodal assessment of bone damage, with Prof Hanna Isaksson, Lund University, Sweden|
Multiscale and multimodal assessment of bone damage Abstract: Bone is a smart composite construction material, and a fascinating biological tissue. Its hierarchically optimized structure and unique composition results in a tissue that in a healthy state is able to withstand surprisingly high loads without fracturing. However, when affected by degenerative diseases, its strength and fracture resistance diminish substantially. Thus, understanding how bone fails and fractures as an organ requires...
