Project Title: Variability of the Circumferential Tensile Modulus within
Human Menisci

Principal Investigator: Dr. Maury L. Hull

Address: Biomedical Engineering Graduate Group
University of California, Davis
Davis, CA 95616

Telephone: 530-752-2713
Fax: 530-752-4158

Tissue Requested: Tibial plateau with medial and lateral menisci

Total Number Requested: 20 tibial plateaus

Date Needed: Immediate need for 20 specimens

Donor Criteria:
Age: Less than 70 years of age
Condition: No meniscal tears, osteoarthritis, or knee
No dehydration of meniscal tissue or
freezer burn
Other: 2cm of tibial plateau required
Serology: Must be HIV, Hep B, and Hep C negative

Please contact Kate Lechner or Arthur Huang if you have any further

We will pay up to $200 for each tibial plateau.

Please ship specimens fresh frozen on dry ice.

Note: We are in immediate need of tissue due to the difficulties we have
encountered in procuring specimens from other sources. We were to receive
10 knee pairs for our research, but the institution which was to provide
them did not follow through. We need these specimens to complete data
collection for our theses. Thank you.
