Our research group specializes in investigating interactions between structure and function in load-bearing tissues and biomaterials. Our basic science work has focused on understanding the development and normal operation of healthy tissues, and how mechanical events or structural changes may contribute to initiation and progression of disease. Our applied research focuses on developing novel materials and methods for tissue reconstruction and regeneration. Projects often take a hierarchical approach, assessing mechanics and structure at multiple levels from macro to nanoscale, and incorporate a multidisciplinary array of techniques.
