Personal profile


Dr Zebaze is a Doctor of Medicine,  an inventor, clinician, and scientist. His work focuses on studying the pathogenesis, the structural and material basis of bone diseases with the main goal of developing novel diagnostic tools.  His research uses a wide range of advanced technologies such as High-Resolution peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (HRpQCT), Nano-indentation, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and standard X-rays.

Dr Zebaze is the lead inventor in > 10 patents granted worldwide in the field of bone medicine and imaging (including USA, Canada, EU, China, Japan, and Australia). He is the lead inventor of one of the few medical devices in the field of bone medical imaging that has received regulatory approvals (TGA, CE Marking -i.e., StrAx1.0).

Dr Zebaze's research agenda currently focuses on developing novel diagnostic tools targeting rare bone diseases and fragility fractures unexplained by the measurement of bone density, architecture, or strength such as stress fractures or atypical femoral fractures. He has proposed bone that abnormalities and fragility in these settings are due to disorganization or misalignment of bone tissue. To address the critical clinical unmet need due to the inability to properly assess these patients, he has developed and validated the World-First and only DISORGANIZATION MEASURER- ALIGNOGRAM1.0.

Dr Zebaze has co-authored more than 150 publications and conference papers including top Journals such as the Lancet.
