Dr Peter Grabowski


Dr Peter Grabowski is a Lecturer in Human Nutrition and has established the technology for microindentation analysis of bone. Peter’s research interests focus on the cell and molecular biology of osteoblasts and osteoclasts and on the impact and interaction of genetic and environmental factors on skeletal integrity. Microindentation analysis offers novel insights into the ways that disease, diet, exercise and other factors affect the material properties of bone, providing minimally invasive in vitro measures of fracture resistance and elastic deformation.
