Dr. Mary Goldring Named President of Orthopaedic Research Society

New York, NY—March 31, 2010

Mary Goldring, Ph.D., senior scientist, director, Laboratory for Cartilage Biology, Tissue Engineering Repair and Regeneration Program at Hospital for Special Surgery, and professor of Cell and Developmental Biology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York has been elected fourth vice present of the Orthopaedic Research Society. The announcement at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society in New Orleans in March, confirms Dr. Goldring’s path toward assuming the presidency in four to five years.

Previously the head of the Special Projects and Education committee, Dr. Goldring was chosen by the members of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) over a number of other candidates through an election process. The organization’s membership is composed of orthopedists, basic scientists and bioengineers and they strive to have a board that is representative of their membership. Dr. Goldring will represent the basic sciences in her position. She is also currently a co-editor for the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism and a board member of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International.

Dr. Goldring’s research is focused on cartilage, the tissue within the joints that provides cushioning. Her work explores the basic biology of the tissue and its individual cells, called chondrocytes, both in its normal state and when it is damaged, as in osteoarthritis, the leading cause of joint replacement surgery. Understanding, at a mechanistic and genetic level, how cartilage tissue develops and and responds to mechanical and inflammatory stress may provide insight into approaches to slow cartilage damage, if not help stimulate repair.
