"A New Laser Therapy to Delay the Progression of Osteoarthritis": Krista Durney’s work (from the lab of Professor Gerard Ateshian) explores experimental models of articular cartilage wear progression during activities of daily living in order to improve understanding of osteoarthritis onset. Using such damage models, lubricants and novel therapies are explored. In this talk, Krista will present a novel laser-based method for strengthening cartilage tissue and delaying wear progression.
