Sarah Moore is a PhD Candidate, supervised by Professor Heather McKay. Sarah joined CHHM in 2007 after completing her MSc in Applied Health Sciences in Ontario. Her research program will examine the growth and development of bone and muscle tissue across puberty using novel technologies such as high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT). Sarah is a researcher with the Healthy Bones Study and is evaluating the sex-, maturity- and ethnicity-related differences in bone strength and muscle accrual. In particular, Sarah is interested in the role of physical activity, fat mass, and nutrition on the developmental trajectory of these tissues.
