Faculty Profile - Ozan Akkus

When Ozan Akkus sat down with Purdue University News Service last fall, he had no idea of what was getting ready to unfold. The story on his research into detecting microfractures in bone as they happen, and before they can combine to become major problems for humans and animals, struck a chord around the world. Not only did the story end up published in newspapers around the world, including London's Daily Mail and in magazines including The Futurist, it has caught the attention of both companies and patients. You can hear more about this story in our first podcast posted at the Weldon blog. While you are there, check out the latest post from student blogger Arjun I.
