The Surgical and Orthopaedic Research Laboratories research interests encompass the biology and biomechanics of connective tissue healing and strategies to improve clinical outcomes using biomaterials and biotechnology in injured and diseased states. Our primary fields of interest overlap with our surgical colleagues in the disciplines of orthopaedics, spine, plastics and vascular surgery.

Our goal

Our goal is to provide a collaborative and exciting research environment to further the understanding of the interface between surgery, engineering and medicine.
