Nazarian Lab

Basic Biomechanics and Bioimaging

Dr. Ara Nazarian's work focuses on basic biomechanics and bioimaging of normal and pathologic cancellous and cortical bone, with emphasis on fracture prediction resultant from local and systemic skeletal pathologies.

Among his current projects are the CT-based Structural Rigidity Analysis (CTRA) methodology, which he has worked on for the past eight years with Dr. Brian Snyder, and, in collaboration with Drs. Arun Ramappa and Joseph DeAngelis, a Major League Baseball-funded study that explores whether scapulo-thoracic motion (scapular motion relative respect to the thorax) significantly affects superior labral strain.
