Not Finding What You're Looking For?
For nearly 60 years, we’ve been recognized for the depth of our expertise with myriad conditions affecting the nerves, muscles, bones and joints in adults and children.
We have found that spastic muscle, although having a normal stretch reflex, has a significantly higher intrinsic muscle stiffness compared to control muscle.
We are developing a minimally invasive tool to measure muscle force using fiber optics.
We investigate the role of specific muscle resident stem cells, called satellite cells, in the development of muscle contractures in cerebral palsy.
Development of New 3D-Printed Cell Culture Assays for Therapeutic Discovery in Cerebral Palsy and Stroke
We spatially pattern muscle stem cells (called satellite cells) and other cells to create in vitro 3D tissue models to study cell-cell interactions and other changes in cerebral palsy and stroke
A minimally invasive, fiber-optic technique that accurately measures the passive stretch and twitch contraction of living muscle tissue could someday be an alternative to the painful muscle biopsies.
