Materials–Based Research Grant


Not all bone is created equal. We know that farming practices have an effect on animal bone qualities. We do not yet know how farming practices that affect the animal’s quality of life determine bone china material properties. Our preliminary experiments show dramatic differences in bone china quality using single source, organic, pastured, hormone and drug free animal bone ash compared to industrially sourced bone ash.

Dr. Tobias Landberg earned his B.A. from the University of Massachusetts (2001). As an undergraduate he worked on the anatomical preparation of skeletons in the Massachusetts Museum of Natural History with Dr. Laurie Godfrey and in Dr. Elizabeth Brainerd's comparative physiology lab studying breathing and locomotion in turtles.
