Research Description

My lab studies the healing of the musculoskeletal system. 
The overall goal of my laboratory is to implement innovative approaches for 
engineering new musculoskeletal tissue utilizing knowledge derived from basic 
molecular and cellular biology and biomaterials.  More specifically, we are actively 
involved in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie 
musculoskeletal development and regeneration.  Previously, we have used fracture 
repair as an model system to study tissue regeneration at the molecular level.  Results 
from these early experiments enabled us to branch into various different projects, some 
of which we are actively pursuing.  We are also involved in tissue engineering 
research by focusing on the fabrication and characterization of biomimetic scaffolds.  
Lastly, we also initiated a translational research project that ties some of our 
fracture healing research in humans.
