Bone health in children


Bone tissue of children in health and disease will be studied. Much of the focus of bone tissue has been devoted to adults. It is of great importance to carry out research in the field of pediatrics where one is able to intervene earlier or increase quality of life for many more years. An increased knowledge of children’s bone health, both in health and disease, can in the future prevent growth problems and minimize the side effects of pharmaceutical strategies such as glucocorticoids or of diseases such as CKD. It is of great importance to find new non-invasive clinical markers for bone diseases and to achieve new, fast with low radiation and reliable bone measurement techniques for children. Strong and healthy bone tissue in a growing generation of children will help to avoid osteoporosis in the future
