    Collapse Overview
    The Spine laboratory studies the biology and mechanisms of various spine pathologies using basic science models and clinical research. Our projects cover in vitro and in vivo research on vertebral fusion, bone formation, and intervertebral discs. Our clinical studies utilize a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the causation of degenerative spinal conditions and their current treatments, including outcomes and cost. We are also investigating new diagnostic and treatment approaches in tissue engineering, biomarkers and mechanobiology, and the potential of progenitor cells to drive disc regeneration. Biologics for spine fusion are one of the key research areas in our group, both within the translational (animal models) and clinical research.
