The other way: investigating an alternative mechanism for bone formation

Recognition: NWOVeniScientific


Although bone is a vital organ, little is understood on its formation processes. By building “bone on a chip”, Akiva will investigate the bio-chemical processes that control bone mineralization. In particular, she looks at the role of blood plasma in this process. Her research can lead to new bone disease treatments.
