Orthopedic Soft Tissue Research Program

Restoring the function of injured orthopedic soft tissues to their native state.

We are a team of clinicians, scientists, and engineers who carry out research on the health and function of joints and surrounding tissues. Our research relates to the mechanisms of joint injuries commonly seen in active individuals, including injury to articular cartilage, tendon, ligament, meniscus, and intervertebral disc. We are developing targeted approaches that promote more robust and consistent tissue repair to restore joint mobility and prevent degeneration.
