Short Biography: Dr. X. Edward Guo is Chair and Stanley Dicker Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Professor of Medical Sciences (in Medicine) at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Columbia University. Professor Guo directs the Bone Bioengineering Laboratory focusing research on bone mechanics, microstructural analyses of skeleton, and mechanobiology. Professor Guo is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, the International Combined Orthopaedic Research Societies, and the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering.
Abstract: Bone modeling and remodeling are governed by distinct cellular processes that may hold unique opportunities for optimizing bone mass. Remodeling refers to the coupled resorption and subsequent formation on bone surfaces, while modeling represents uncoupled instances of these events. Mechanical loading is known to be beneficial to maximizing total bone mass, though whether this is achieved through modeling or remodeling (or by some combination) is unclear. In addition, the skeleton consists of compact cortical bone and porous trabecular bone which contributes to different functions in mechanical support of the skeleton. How these two bone compartments bone respond to mechanical loading and their underlying cellular mechanism also remain elusive. In this joint ICMRS-WACBE webinar, an update of recent findings in bone modeling and remodeling response to mechanical loading will be presented.
This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Xiaodu Wang, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Texas at San Antonio.
