Michael Voor

My background is in orthopaedic biomechanics and bone quality research, having trained under Steven Cowin and Richard Hart at Tulane University in the late 1980s and early 1990s. While at the University of Louisville, I have received support from the Whitaker Foundation, the NSF, and the NIH. My lab has extensive experience with biomechanical testing of orthopaedic implants, especially fracture fixation devices. We have also developed new orthopaedic implants including implants for customized fracture applications.  Further we have developed a unique in vivo high resolution (micro) CT scanning system for the study of bone quality in small (rat, mouse) and medium sized (rabbit) animals.
