Impact loading and functional tissue engineering of articular cartilage
This thesis presents two advances for alleviating the problem of articular cartilage degeneration: mitigating degradative changes that follow mechanically induced injuries and growing functional neo-cartilage for diseased ...
Chondrocyte biomechanics and chondrogenesis
This thesis contributes to two aspects of cartilage research: understanding the biomechanical characteristics of single chondrocytes, and tissue engineering musculoskeletal cartilages with human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). ...
