Dr. Pascual-Garrido awarded 2016 AOSSM/Sanofi Biosurgery Osteoarthritis Grant

AURORA, Colorado | May 9, 2016

The American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM) has awarded Dr. Cecilia Pascual-Garrido with the 2016 Sanofi Biosurgery Osteoarthritis Grant. Her application, “Cartilage Repair with Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) Delivered in a Novel Chondroitin Sulfate/Polyethylene Glycol Hydrogel in an Equine Animal Model”, was selected as the winner of the $50,000 grant. 

The AOSSM/Sanofi Biosurgery grant was established to fund research related to early osteoarthritis and/or the prevention of osteoarthritis progression. This initiative addresses the growing concern around the importance of treatment of osteoarthritis within sports medicine and orthopaedics. Dr. Pascual-Garrido’s research stood out from the others, impressing the review panel with its “high potential to provide important and timely information that could significantly impact clinical practice.” 

Congratulations to Dr. Pascual-Garrido.
