Mechanobiology of skeletal tissues lies at the heart of two of the most common skeletal diseases in the elderly...osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Due to our aging population, the prevalence of these diseases is increasing each year and motivates much of our research.
Projects that are currently underway include the following:
|bone strength, structure & remodeling|
|knee meniscectomy & osteoarthritis biomechanics|
|mechanical properties of cartilage|
|patellofemoral pain mechanism & cartilage modeling|
