Cartilage research


The research we do in the lab is destined for your bedside. We always have clinical application in mind.

Our basic science research also aims to push the boundaries of treatment. The more we understand stem cells and growth factors, the better your options become.

The Orthopedic Cartilage Research Lab is part of the Regenerative Orthopedics Lab on the CU Anshutz Medical Campus. We also have collaborative relationships with Biomaterials and Functional Tissue Engineering Lab at CU Boulder and the Orthopedic Research Lab at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University.

Our doctors are also active members of several national research and medical societies, including the:

  • International Cartilage Repair Society
  • Orthopedic Research Society
  • Orthopedic Research and Education Society
  • American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine
