Part II: Research and Teaching Contributions

A. Narrative Report

Dr. Müller is a Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology and heads the Laboratory for Bone Biomechanics at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. He is currently on sabbatical leave as a Visiting Professor at the Department of Bioengineering of Imperial College London. He studied electrical engineering at ETH Zürich, where he also received his doctoral degree in 1994. Subsequently, he served as a project manager for the micro-computed tomography project of the European Union Concerted Action BIOMED1 "Assessment of Bone Quality in Osteoporosis". At that time, Dr. Müller was involved in the development of a compact desktop micro-tomographic imaging system that since has been commercialized and is now marketed worldwide. In 1996, he moved to Boston where he served as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School and the Associate Director of the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory. Between 2000 and 2011, he was first an SNF Professor of Bioengineering at the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering and then Associate and Full Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zürich. In 2012, he was one of the founding members of the Department of Health Sciences and Technology, which he headed from 2014 to 2016. The research he has completed and is currently pursuing employs state-of-the-art biomechanical testing and simulation techniques as well as novel bioimaging and visualization strategies for musculoskeletal tissues. Today, these techniques are successfully employed for the quantitative assessment and monitoring of structure function relationships in tissue regeneration, growth and adaptation. His approaches are now often used for precise phenotypic characterization of tissue response in mammalian genetics, mechanobiology as well as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Dr. Müller is an author of 317 refereed original journal and 225 proceeding articles, 78 chapters and reviews, 2 books, and 602 peer-reviewed abstracts. His work has been cited over 25,000 times on Google Scholar with an h-index of 85. He has received numerous awards, including the Inaugural John Haddad Young Investigator Award (1999) from the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) and Advances in Mineral Metabolism (AIMM) as well as the Promising Young Scientist Award (1999) from the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB). In 2004, he was named Young Leader by the American-Swiss Foundation, in 2007 he received the Publication Group Award from the German Academy of Osteological and Rheumatological Sciences and in 2012 he and his team won the ESB Clinical Biomechanics Award from the European Society of Biomechanics. In 2015, he was elected to the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW) and as a Fellow of the European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering and Science (EAMBES). In 2017, the European Research Council (ERC) awarded him with a prestigious ERC Advanced Grant. He is also active as an organizer of international symposia and workshops as well as an editorial board member and reviewer for scientific journals and funding agencies. He is a former President of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) and the Swiss Society for Biomedical Engineering (SSBE) and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the International Society of Bone Morphometry (ISBM). He has held scientific and management positions on more than 70 research grants and currently receives funding from Swiss National Science Foundation, State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI), European Union, ERC Advanced, COST, and various ETH intramural funds. Dr. Müller is a founder and co-organizer of the ETH graduate program in Biomedical Engineering. He is teaching courses on "Introduction to Biomedical Engineering I and II", "Orthopaedic Biomechanics" and "Multiscale Bone Biomechanics" at ETH Zürich. In 2008, he co-founded two MedTech spin-off companies, Pearltec AG, developing and marketing novel patient positioning systems for medical imaging procedures using patented technology from ETH Zürich, and b-cube AG, now a subsidiary of Scanco Medical.

C. Report of Current Research Activities

Swiss National Science Foundation/SCOPES Joint Research Project: "Intelligent scaffolds as a tool for advanced tissue regeneration" (Principle Investigator) The main aim of the proposed project is development of innovative biotechnology for formation of intelligent biomimetic scaffolds as advanced solutions for bone tissue engineering capable to provide high level of chemical stability, structural integrity and cytocompatibility. For that purpose multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach will be applied to; (i) Reach significantly high level of the similarity of the scaffold with the native bone tissue by mimicking its compositional, structural, surface and mechanical properties; (ii) Rationalize bioactivity-biodegradation-mechanical strength relationship by the application of the interpenetrating polymer approach where mechanical strength of synthetic polymers will be combined with bioactivity and strength-supported role of natural polymers; (iii) Formulate the innovative layer-by-layer approach for assembly of the 3D scaffolds specially optimized to combine controlled micro-porosity, nanostructured topography, and specific surface functionalities within a single scaffold; and (iv) Incorporate the mechanism for guiding the regeneration process by two-directional interaction of the scaffold with surrounding cells in order to reach desired biological response.

European Union/COST Action: "Development of a European network for preclinical testing of interventions in mouse models of age and age-related diseases" (Deputy Chair of Action, Member Management Committee, Member Core Group) The number of people over 65 is predicted to double in the next 50 years. Age is the most important risk factor for stroke, heart attacks, cancers, diabetes, and many other chronic diseases. Tackling the effects of the ageing population in Europe has stimulated funding of research initiatives at both national and European levels. A key requisite to develop new interventions for age-related conditions and promote healthier ageing is the availability and use of preclinical murine models. There is currently a clear lack of such models and appropriate standardised methodologies to test interventions. Therefore, to improve the quality of European ageing research a coordinated interdisciplinary action is needed to standardise methodologies and animal welfare, and to define endpoints, as well as centralising information, models and technologies for the assessment of interventions. This COST Action proposes the formation of a highly interactive and flexible European network, which will create a critical mass of cross-disciplinary scientists, clinicians and industrial partners to reach consensus on ways to test preclinical interventions in ageing mice. It will consolidate current best practice across leading European institutions and researchers, maximise resource efficiency, and provide a platform to help train the next generation of scientists.

Swiss National Science Foundation/State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation: “Determining the 3D gene and protein expression of osteocytes using Local in vivo Environment (LivE) imaging in aged mice with osteoporosis” (Principal Investigator) Osteoporosis is a disease of ageing that affects millions of elderly people across Europe. Osteocytes are regularly dispersed throughout the bone matrix and appear to be the key mediators of bone remodelling. However, the molecular mechanisms by which osteocytes coordinate osteoporotic degeneration of bone are largely unknown making it difficult to decide which gene and protein targets would be most relevant for clinical interventions. This project aims to generate a gold standard methodology that can bridge the gap by linking osteocyte gene and protein expression, remodelling activity and the local micromechanical environment across the 3D osteocyte network using a LivE imaging approach. As current animal models do not well recapitulate senile osteoporosis in humans, the project also aims to use a mouse model with naturally accelerated ageing that better replicates human degenerative phenotypes. Finally, the experimental data generated in this project will be used in the validation of a multiscale in silico model of bone that will allow to predict age-related changes on the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ level.

European Union/Marie-Curie-COFUND (WHRI-ACADEMY): "Enhanced bone revascularization through biomaterials, mechanical loading, and computational biomechanics" (Host Coordinator) The management of bone defects continues to present surgical challenges, motivating bone regeneration research. With a chemical similarity to bone mineral, calcium phosphates (CaP) is the most obvious choice for bone graft substitutes, despite that they remain inferior to autograft. This project explores how to bridge that gap through mechanical loading and vascularity. The hypothesis is that combining mechanical loading with CaPs will induce a synergistic effect that enhances healing, driven by changes in the angiogenic responses. One of the major difficulties with current techniques is to match the developing vascularity with the local strain history of the region. To address this, time-lapse µCT will be used to visualize vascularity, bone formation, and CaP degradation. Using existing computational methods, the localized strain conditions can be modeled. To investigate molecular mechanisms, laser capture microdissection will be used to study the endothelial cell gene expression at 4 weeks, and these will be correlated to revascularization outcomes. This fresh approach will provide massive insight into how biomaterials, mechanical loading, and vascularity relate to bone biomechanics and regeneration.

Swiss National Science Foundation/DACH: "Local remodelling and mechanoregulation of bone fracture healing in healthy, aged, and osteoporotic humans" (Principal Investigator) Current knowledge of fracture healing is mainly based on experimental studies of diaphyseal bone healing, even though many age and osteoporosis associated fractures occur in the bone metaphysis. So far, little is known about the mechanoregulation of trabecular bone healing. Furthermore, age and osteoporosis might affect fracture healing and are potential causes for delayed healing or reduced boen restoration capacity. The aims of this project are therefore to (1) investigate local bone remodelling and (2) the effect of global loading conditions on fracture healing as well as (3) to study local mechanoregulation of metaphyseal bone fracture healing in healthy, aged, and osteoporotic humans. In this highly multidisciplinary, multinational German-Austrian-Swiss (DACH) research collaboration, high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) scanning will be incorporated in a clinical research setting in Innsbruck and Bern to assess healing bone microstructures at the distal forearm in patients in vivo. Novel image analysis and simulation techniques will be developped in Zurich and Ulm allowing to investigate local bone remodeling and mechanoregulation of fracture healing in healthy, aged and osteoporotic human bone.

European Research Council/ERC Advanced: "In vivo single-cell mechanomics of bone adaptation and regeneration in the aging mouse" (Coordinator, Principal Investigator) Osteoporosis is characterized by a reduction in bone mass and increased fracture risk and has been partly attributed to the decrease in mechanical usage of the skeleton. A detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms governing load-regulated bone remodeling could therefore lead to the identification of molecular targets for the development of novel therapies. By combining single-cell “omics” technologies with well-established tissue-scale models of bone mechanobiology, this project proposes to develop the technology required to allow spatially resolved in vivo single-cell mechanomics of bone adaptation and regeneration. CRISPR/Cas technology will be exploited to generate fluorescent reporter mice to identify the different cell types involved in the bone remodeling process. By combining RNA-sequencing of single cells isolated by laser-capture microdissection with micro-finite element analysis and time-lapsed in vivo micro-CT, we will link the transcriptome of hundreds of single cells to their local mechanical in vivo environment (LivE). This will allow investigation of molecular responses of the cells to LivE changes with aging in established mouse models of bone adaptation and regeneration. Additionally, cellular and multiscale computational modeling will be used to run in silico simulations of real-world events for better understanding of diseases of aging in mice and to maximize the use of the high quality in vivo mechanomic data. Findings will lead to a systems level understanding of the spatio-temporal regulation of gene expression during the process of load-induced bone adaptation and regeneration in the aging mouse.
