Our laboratory focuses on understanding how the brain controls skilled movements and how changes in brain function affect movement performance.
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.
Our lab strives to understand the mechanisms that drive post-traumatic arthritis after intra-articular joint injuries, especially anterior cruciate ligament injury.
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.
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.
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.
Our laboratory concentrates on the application of micro- and nanotechnology to biomedical applications.
We are investigating cardiovascular dynamics relating to mechanical support devices such as ventricular assist devices and the total artificial heart.
Our lab is looking to develop a screening platform for drugs across the blood-brain barrier to improve drug therapy.
The long-term goal of our research is improve the healing of bypass grafts or arteries after balloon angioplasty and stenting.
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.
Our primary focus is on leveraging nanotechnology for developing novel and safe theranostic and preventative agents for non-invasive therapies.
Our research focus is on the use of nanotechnology (such as "nanoparticles") to detect and treat various diseases.
Our laboratory’s focus is on exploring and improving advanced musculoskeletal imaging techniques to be applied in a range of orthopaedic and rheumatologic disorders.
