Bone cell growth is stimulated by several chemical and mechanical factors. In this project, we will focus on understanding the type (e.g., shear or pressure) and magnitude of mechanical stimuli that promote or reduce cell growth. Our goal is to mechanistically link experimental results available in the literature and our own to cell growth using a mathematical model, which can then be adopted in finite element simulations.
