Ph.D. alum James Nishimuta and SURI undergrad researcher Monica Bendernagel had their paper, Co-culture with Infrapatellar Fat Pad Differentially Stimulates Proteoglycan Synthesis and Accumulation in Cartilage and Meniscus Tissues, accepted for publication in a special issue of Connective Tissue Research focused on the meniscus.  This research shows that fat tissue from healthy joints can stimulate anabolic (matrix building) activity by articular cartilage, and underscores the complex intratissue interactions responsible for maintenance of joint health.  Congratulations, James and Monica!
