Research Overview

My research interests focus on the development of translational technologies based on articular cartilage progenitor cell biology primarily in the equine field. This work has resulted in the first large animal studies utilising both equine (Colorado, USA) and caprine (Davos, Switzerland) models. My interests also lie in the biology of both the articular cartilage progenitor cell and a meniscus-specific stem/progenitor cell in human tissue and their potential role in tissue repair and osteoarthritis.
