Learn about the development of mechanism-based strategies to mitigate joint degeneration, support joint repair, and to restore joint function is critical to address a range of clinical conditions that currently require orthopedic surgery. Dr. van Wijnen's group develops strategies for joint health by emulating biological mechanisms that promote normal bone, cartilage, tendon, and ligament development. Studies in his group span a range of subjects including the characterization of (i) mesenchymal stem cells to support clinical trials using autologous regenerative therapies, (ii) new cell- and drug-based strategies for surgical repair of bone, cartilage, and ligament, as well as (iii) strategies to promote osseointegration and avert arthrofibrosis during joint replacement. The results from these studies aim to improve quality of life for patients with joint diseases or injuries, and improve the safety and efficacy of total joint replacement.

Straub Hall, 156

Sixties activists insisted the personal is political. Change-makers in the digital age get that idea, and one-up it with another rallying cry: the political is social and cultural. Your platforms and digital strategies need to make this principle count, so that you, your peers, and your audiences engage each other, and the allies you all want, in high-quality, equitable, and effective participation in digital-age civics, activism, and politics. What’s more, you need digital environments that actively support the secure development of your identities as participants in public spheres, so your civic and political engagement today doesn’t harm or haunt you later. Thinking that through comes first.
