    The Musculo-Skeletal Research Laboratories focus on
    the physical mechanisms involved in the control of
    tissue growth, healing, and homeostasis, and how these
    mechanisms can be utilized in the treatment and
    prevention of disease and injury. The group emphasizes
    interdisciplinary approaches to these problems, from
    the in vitro to the clinical level. More information
