Who we are

The BioMotion Laboratory takes a unique multidisciplinary approach to studying osteoarthritis, the pathways to osteoarthritis, and the mechanics of sports injury through studies that examine the interaction of cell biology and biomechanics of movement. Current projects include imaging studies of knee cartilage, aging and the initiation of osteoarthritis, the mechanics of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury/treatment and meniscal tears and repairs. The BioMotion Laboratory conducts translational research to develop interventions for the prevention of ACL injury and osteoarthritis at the knee. The BioMotion Laboratory is also recognized as a leader in the development of new methods for the capture of human movement.
