Research projects - Anatomy and Embryology

Anatomy

  • Biomechanics of the sacroiliac joint, of the cervical spine and the soft tissue anatomy of the knee (in relation to total knee arthroplasty)
  • Guideline development and automation of delineations in radiotherapy planning (brachial plexus, prostate)
  • Shape variation lower quadrant of large imaging datasets (n=800)
  • Vascularization of the brain and temporomandibular joint
  • Validation of prone versus supine radiotherapy of breast cancer
  • Embalming techniques : chemicals and protection, tissue characteristics

Embryology

  • Immunogenic cell death modalities (apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis and others) in experimental cancer treatment
  • Analysis of modulation of cell death by connexin gap junctional channels and hemi-channels
  • Peroxisomes and peroxisomal beta-oxidation in the modulation of cell death and inflammation
  • Role of cell death in neurodegenerative diseases
