Two students from the COL presented their research at the poster sessions of the University of Missouri’s Life Sciences Week. Nicole Waters (PhD candidate) presented a poster entitled “Development of an Osteochondral Impact Injury Model with Subsequent Dynamic Compressive Loading.” Her poster focused on her work developing a clinically relevant in vitro model for post-traumatic osteoarthritis.
Alex Cook (sophomore Pre-Med) presented a poster entitled “In Vitro Response of Cartilage and Synovial Tissues to Inflammation and Trauma.” His poster focused on his work further characterizing our in vitro osteoarthritis models, and the role of cartilage and synovium in the clinical development and progression of OA.
Congratulations to Nicole and Alex for a job well done.
