Alyssa G. Oberman, PhD
Dr. Oberman studies bone mechanobiology and how mechanical input corresponds to morphological changes in the tissue. Her previous work focused on developing in situ models of orthopedic implants to evaluate limitations to osseointegrated knee implants. Her most recent research focus has been exploring the local mechanical and biological cues that differ between skull and long bones to understand how the skull can retain mechanical and material integrity without distinct external loading.
