In his research, Fred Shapiro seeks to elucidate the causes of pediatric skeletal deformities. His laboratory uses light and electron microscopy to assess bone and cartilage. He is particularly interested in early distinctions in the growing skeleton between pathobiology and normal bone biology and the microscopy-magnetic resonance imaging characteristics that differentiate one from the other.
