About Me

In May 2021, Rose  joined Dr. Prakash Jayabalan in the Translational Musculoskeletal Research lab as a clinical research assistant. Her primary focus at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is an investigation into the effectiveness of an AI-enabled Digital Knee care platform for the rehabilitation of medial-compartment knee osteoarthritis. She is also involved in several studies that use biomarker analysis (of synovial fluid and blood) to better understand the knee's biological response to various stressors. Before joining Dr. Jayabalan, Rose worked in the University of Michigan Orthopedic Research Laboratories, where she studied the effects of ischemic therapy and sex-related differences in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis.
