Student Research Fund

Mustafa Unal, EMAE graduate student and Ph.D. candidate in Orthopaedic Bioengineering Laboratory led by DrOzan Akkus, has received the student research fund from
The George W. Codrington Charitable Foundation by means of think[box] at CWRU for his ongoing research. His research includes developing a novel diagnostic technique to assess bone quality through Raman Spectroscopy; the novel technique would potentially help to improve the current diagnostic technique for those who may be at risk of bone fracture due to the bone diseases (e.g., osteoporosis). By 2025, the annual fractures due the osteoporosis are estimated
to surpass 3 million for the United States with the medical costs of $25 billion.
