Research Statement:

I study the pathobiology of Osteoarthritis (OA) and OA pain. I am interested in identifying novel therapeutic targets; studying the particular differences in disease across gender and ethnicity. Further, we are investigating the role of Mesenchymal stem cells in OA; particularly their paracrine and anti-inflammatory effects within the synovial joint. My expertise includes proteomics, genomics, molecular biology, and epidemiology.
