About the Lab

Our lab studies the injury and healing of musculoskeletal tissues such as tendon, muscle and bone that serve vital functions in daily activities and sport-related activities.  Our primary research interests include the development of non-invasive therapies for the treatment of tendon injuries as well as machine learning approaches to detect skeletal injuries from clinical ultrasound images. 

MTS: Mechanical Testing Machine

Experimental testing of the biomechanical properties of skeletal tissues such as tendons of the rotator cuff.
