Prof Andrew Pitsillides and his team have made International and National presentations and published work on 3D-evaluation of Skeletal Mechanobiology in Bones and Joints 

15 Nov 21

Members of the Skeletal Biology Group at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), London led by Prof Andrew Pitsillides have made significant advances using support from the ImagingBioPro Network. They have presented their work showing that distinct architectural components of a single bone behave modularly, with distinct temporal trajectories, in response ... [more]

Human Organ Atlas

Revolutionary imaging technology developed by IBP investigators captured the damage caused by Covid-19 to the lungs’ smallest blood vessels

4 Nov 21

A revolutionary imaging technology called Hierarchical Phase-Contrast Tomography (HiP-CT) developed by our IBP investigator Prof Peter Lee and his team at University College London (UCL) and European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). HiP-CT enables 3D mapping the organs across a range of scales, a whole organ level down to down to ... [more]

Network Proof of Concept Award (PoCA) enabled Dr Alessandro Borghi and his team to study cranial bone microarchitecture for syndromic craniosynostosis

15 Jan 21

The aim of the study was to investigate microstructural changes in mouse cranial bone as a result of syndromic craniosynostosis (a congenital craniofacial malformation). Dr Sara Ajami from the team explains "This would enable us to have a better understanding of bone physical quality at different stages of skull ... [more]
