Research Expertise: Bioelectrical properties of bone and connective tissue
Solomon's research is concerned with the musculoskeletal system. His laboratory has special interests in the bioelectrical properties of bone and connective tissue; the electrical stimulation of bone growth and fracture healing; electrokinetic effects in bone; biomaterials, hydroxyapatite, and implants; and fluid flow effects on bone cells and their relationship to bone tissue engineering. They also conduct research on tissue engineering of bone graft material in rotating bioreactors. He has introduced new technologies for 3-D scaffolds in bone tissue engineering that facilitates earlier matrix synthesis and calcification. These technologies combined with the use of rotating bioreactors offers the opportunity to advance this field to the point of clinical trials.
