Research

Dr. Hansen’s research and clinical interests include osteoporosis, abnormal vitamin D and calcium homeostasis and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Ongoing research projects include a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial of vitamin D therapy for people with rheumatoid arthritis, use of calcium isotopes to determine alterations in calcium homeostasis among postmenopausal women with vitamin D insufficiency, and analysis of lumbar spine bone mass using three different methods as a means of predicting fragility fracture among men in the MrOS study.
