Orthopedic Engineering combines principles of tissue engineering, cell biology, and biomechanics to generate new knowledge of bone and soft tissue biology and develop novel therapies to treat musculoskeletal disease.

This program seeks to understand the mechanical and material properties of bone and soft tissues (muscle, cartilage) and to exploit biomaterial and cellular processes to mediate injury responses and promote regeneration. Computational models play a significant role in the design of and development of new experimental methods and protocols.
