Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: Biomechanics Of Noncollagenous Osteocalcin/Osteopontin Protein Complex In Bone

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: Natl Science Foundation

Program Title: N/A
CFDA Linked: Engineering Grants


This project is aimed at investigating the biomechanics of a class of noncollagenous protein complex based on osteocalcin (OCN) and osteopontin (OPN). The proposed study is transformative in that it seeks to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of deformation and fracture behavior of an importance class of bio-interface for the first time.
