Andrew Burghardt is a Research Specialist in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at University of California, San Francisco where he serves as the Technical Director of the Quantitative Micro-Imaging Facility (QMIF). His area of expertise is high-resolution imaging computational analysis of musculoskeletal tissues. Osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and bone acquisition and development are the principle focus application areas for his research. As a Principal Investigator he has been awarded two R01s from NIH/NIAMS related to the standardization of HR-pQCT and the development of 3D statistical mapping techniques for population-based analyses of bone quality. He has also been a co-investigator on several other significant NIH-funded projects, including Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS), a 6000-subject observational study of osteoporosis in Men. He is a member of the joint International Osteoporosis Foundation and American Society for Bone and Mineral Research HR-pQCT Working Group. He is also a founding member of the SPECTRA group (Study GrouP for XTrEme-CT in RA) that aims to develop standard methods to detect and quantify early signs of progression and treatment response in rheumatoid arthritis using HR-pQCT.
