    Research Areas:
    Dr. Ross’ research is focused in two areas: skeletal mineralization and circulating biomarkers. Mineralization is the final step in the bone formation phase, providing the skeleton with its characteristic mechanical properties. Despite its importance to the overall function of the skeletal, it remains poorly understood and difficult to study. Dr. Ross’ lab is currently working to develop a novel small animal model to study mineralization. Once this model is fully validated, it can be used to develop a new understanding of the mineralization process and the effect that various drugs, genes, and nutritional factors have on mineralization.

    Dr. Ross has also been working on various projects related to the use of circulating biomarkers as diagnostic tools. These markers may help identify patients suffering from diseases, such as peri-implant osteolysis prior to current clinical diagnoses, widening the treatment window and preventing subsequent revision surgeries.
