Dr. Hong’s research focuses are on the development of novel automated bone histomorphometry (femur and vertebrae), long bone fracture (femur and tibia), and calvarial defect. It allows an unbiased assessment of bone formation and repair processes. His main research falls into the following areas: (1) Developing a novel computer automated dynamic and static histomorphometry on a frozen section of bones with GFP and fluorescent mineralization dyes. (2) Application to the assessing fracture models and segmental bone repair models using GFP mice to evaluate the host and donor contribution to the repair.
