Our dynamic, interdisciplinary laboratory centers around biological control and physiological synthesis of bone, cartilage, and skeletal muscle in vitro, in vivo, and for translational applications. Researchers at the post graduate, graduate, and baccalaureate levels collaborate in the Institute for Engineering and Medicine in the Virginia Commonwealth University College of Engineering to further our understanding of these processes.
