Boyd Steve - Professor Department of Radiology

Boyd Steve

University of Calgary
Calgary, Canada

Dr. Boyd is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary performing research in the area of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, with a particular focus on bone microarchitecture and non-invasive estimation of strength and joint health. An early adopter of micro-computed tomography (µCT) technology, he has published over one hundred journal articles and had continuous funding from Canadian national funding agencies (e.g., CIHR, NSERC) since his appointment at the University of Calgary in 2002. His research ranges from some of the first in vivo µCT studies showing bone microarchitectural development in animal models of osteoporosis, to clinical research using recently developed HR-pQCT. He co-leads a Calgary-based population study to determine normative bone microarchitecture and strength across the lifespan in both sexes, and several publications have been made in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research and other relevant journals. He is Director of the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Research. He is cross appointed in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Schulich School of Engineering. He holds two research chairs, namely the Bob and Nola Rintoul Chair in Bone and Joint Research, and the McCaig Chair in Bone and Joint Health.
