Seed Funding for New Research Project

Happy to announce that we just received internal seed funding from the Center for Orthopaedic Research and Translational Science to kick-start a new research project investigating the mechanobiology of cells in ACL reconstructions. The findings from this work will provide novel insight into the cause of inferior allograft remodeling post-surgery and could lead to new methods for augmenting ACL reconstruction.

Welcome to New PhD Student

We are thrilled to have Ben Peterson join our lab as a PhD candidate! Looking forward to seeing the results of his work investigating the role of mechanobiology during late tendon development and how this information can be translated to engineering tendon replacements.

Congrats to Senior Design Team

Congratulations to my senior design team for winning second place on their Capstone Design Project for successfully building a tensile bioreactor! It is well deserved and I am very proud of each of you.
