Research Overview

Our research focuses primarily on Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering with an emphasis on challenging clinical problems and translational solutions. Our approach is to develop in vivo and in vitro models of musculoskeletal injury and clinically-translatable outcome measures to assess the efficacy of regenerative and tissue engineering solutions.
