Applying multidisciplinary approaches to detect the biological and mechanical mechanisms of avascular necrosis, diabetic associated bone changes, and osteoporosis.
Identifying molecular and mechanical pathways that lead to joint degeneration and quantifying the abilities of surgery to intervene.
Engineering innovative additive manufacturing techniques for the next generation of functional joint replacements.
Establishing the cell, tissue, organ, and disease level responses to clinically used biologics. We aspire to use this knowledge to engineer the next generation of immune instructive biological therapeutics for musculoskeletal longevity for humans and animals.
