Filter by Research Themes:

moving performance testing

Alberts Lab

Our laboratory focuses on understanding how the brain controls skilled movements and how changes in brain function affect movement performance.

investigating birth defects

Apte Lab

We carry out fundamental research on extracellular matrix and proteases and apply it to a variety of diseases, such as Marfan syndrome and the acromelic dysplasias.

advanced imaging for arthritis

Beveridge Lab

Our lab strives to understand the mechanisms that drive post-traumatic arthritis after intra-articular joint injuries, especially anterior cruciate ligament injury.

new methods for pelvic floor reconstruction

Damaser Lab

We conduct regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and device development research aimed at improving the health of individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction, including urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

applying engineering concepts to surgery to improve clinical concepts

Derwin Lab

Our research program focuses on identifying the demographic, disease, and surgical factors, as well as local biologic factors such as stem and progenitor cell characteristics and inflammatory biomarkers, which influence healing and clinical outcomes following rotator cuff repair.

modeling insimulation of joints

Erdemir Lab

Our research program develops computational depictions of the human body to understand how movement and loads on the joints reflect on tissue and cell deformation.

micro technologies patient application

Fleischman Lab

Our laboratory concentrates on the application of micro- and nanotechnology to biomedical applications.

artificial heart

Fukamachi Lab

We are investigating cardiovascular dynamics relating to mechanical support devices such as ventricular assist devices and the total artificial heart.

getting drugs into the brain

Ghosh Lab

Our lab is looking to develop a screening platform for drugs across the blood-brain barrier to improve drug therapy.

improving outcomes after vescular surgery

Graham Lab

The long-term goal of our research is improve the healing of bypass grafts or arteries after balloon angioplasty and stenting.

understanding biology of diabetes

Hascall Lab

We are studying how the hyaluronan matrix works in the setting of diabetes, wound healing, inflammatory bowel disease, certain cancers, and asthma and pulmonary hypertension.

nanotechnology for drug delivery

Krishna Lab

Our primary focus is on leveraging nanotechnology for developing novel and safe theranostic and preventative agents for non-invasive therapies.

nanoparticles to treat disease

Labhasetwar Lab

Our research focus is on the use of nanotechnology (such as "nanoparticles") to detect and treat various diseases.

imaging of orthopaedic and rheumatologic diseases

Li Lab

Our laboratory’s focus is on exploring and improving advanced musculoskeletal imaging techniques to be applied in a range of orthopaedic and rheumatologic disorders.

gives touch to artificial limbs

Marasco Lab

Our team works to understand the sensory nervous system and develop translational approaches for providing natural touch and movement feedback for artificial limbs.

studing wound healing and skin cancer

Maytin Lab

In the Laboratory of Molecular Dermatology, we study two skin disease processes that are very important for medicine and surgery: wound healing and skin cancer.

osteoarthritis and osteoporosis

Midura Lab

Our research program aims to uncover novel aspects of how bone tissues form, grow and repair.

tissue engineering of musculoskeletal tissue

Muschler Lab

Our laboratory is focused on advancing the field of tissue engineering through new strategies for preservation, repair, regeneration, augmentation, or replacement of musculoskeletal tissues.

multiple sclerosis imaging

Nakamura Lab

Our objective is to develop new methods for analysis of brain MRIs to gain a better understanding of multiple sclerosis.

rehabilitation of stroke patients

Plow Lab

In our research, we show that rehabilitation, movement re-learning, and noninvasive brain stimulation can harness the brain's potential for positive change.

Saab Lab

Based on emerging scientific evidence that pain is mediated by brain activity, the focus of our lab is to map the neural circuits of pain in the brain and to develop tools and methods for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of disabling pain conditions.

calculating probability of stroke

Vince Lab

Our team is developing computer software that can better analyze ultrasound images of carotid arteries to provide a tool to predict who is at increased risk of stroke.

magnets in medicine

Zborowski Lab

Our lab investigates novel methods of cell separation for medical applications, including rapid screening for cancer cells in blood.
