Principal Investigator: Radiation Effects on Bone Tissue and Cells in Reduced Gravity. Clemson University: Postdoctoral Research Associate. Dr. Jeff Willey has more than eight years research experience in the fields of bioengineering and biological sciences. His current research investigates radiation-induced osteoporosis. Specifically, how ionizing irradiation that models cancer therapy and spaceflight conditions causes bone loss. In addition to his NSBRI-funded project, Willey is a collaborator on other NSBRI, NASA-funded and private-industry-funded projects. Prior to arriving at Clemson, Willey conducted biomechanics research at Ohio University and was a biology instructor at Ohio Northern University. Willey is also active in promoting educational outreach. He is the past-chairperson Radiation Research Society Scholars-In-Training Committee, a group dedicated to promoting the development of students and fellows in the radiation sciences.
