Schwarcz, Henry


Henry Schwarcz is a Professor Emeritus in the School of Geography & Earth Sciences at McMaster University. He is interested in investigating various aspects of fundamental properties of bone. Using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of sections of bone prepared using ion beam milling, he has made many new discoveries about the ultrastructure of bone. His research has led to studies on the effects of osteoporosis on bone ultrastructure, where preliminary work has shown that significant changes in bone ultrastructure can be recognized in osteoporosis patients.
