Multi-scale Mechanics of Musculoskeletal Tissues

Thursday, December 3, 2020

Abstract:

Our lab investigates the structure and function of load bearing tissues, such as intervertebral disc, meniscus, and tendon.  We address questions related to changes that occur during development, how function is lost with aging or injury, and our efforts inform regenerative medicine to improve musculoskeletal function.  This presentation will describe our work to apply multi-scale approaches that integrates mechanical testing, computational modeling, and multimodal imaging across several hierarchical levels from the entire joint, to the tissue, and at the micro-scale levels.
