Dr. Sherk brings to the IMAGE group her expertise on the pQCT, a machine that measures bone mineral density and bone strength. Drs. Sherk and Kohrt will work together on bone health studies, specifically examining the effects of exercise, hormones, calcium homeostasis, and NSAID use on bone health.
