Research Summary

My laboratory interests are in the area of biomechanics. Some current ongoing projects include:

  1. The effects of various adjuvant therapies on the healing and remodeling of bone and bone allografts;
  2. The orthopaedic application of new osteo inductive bone substitutes;
  3. The formation of several different bone designs.
