Students were sharing how the lab can answer questions regarding musculoskeletal health and function using the dynamic x-ray technology in the lab. Their method can be used in various areas such as the foot, knee and shoulder.  

MME grad students representing the new Skeletal Observation Lab showed off 3-D printed bones at Queen’s Park Day in Toronto this past Monday, November 4th. The event was an advocacy day hosted by Queen’s at the Ontario Legislature and provided an opportunity to highlight Queen’s leadership, student success and research impact. Students spoke with elected officials and staff about their research from the dynamic x-ray lab. Last month the lab’s director, Professor Michael Rainbow, was awarded the Early Researcher Award through the Ontario Research Fund to assist with building research teams for biomechanics work.
