Our mission is to investigate musculoskeletal biology and molecular medicine therapies that are associated with orthopedic disease conditions in horses and humans. Under this umbrella, we will study gene therapy systems and tissue engineering, as well as utilize a comparative approach in our research.
We are dedicated to the efforts that are necessary for translational research which moves from “bench to bedside”. We will focus on conditions and therapies that are designed to be directly beneficial to our patients.
Our five main research focuses are:
