University of Missouri – Columbia (MU)

Our team conducts many and varied studies focused on orthopedic disorders of diarthrodial joints. I am responsible for gross and histopathologic examination of all study tissues. My main roles are to (i) quantify and characterize microarchitectural changes seen in joint tissues of the limbs and intervertebral disc in both in vivo and in vitro studies, (ii) develop and validate biomarkers of osteoarthritis in synovial fluid, serum and urine, and (iii) validate canine models of osteoarthritis.
