DRI hosts workshop on biomechanics, knee osteoarthritis


12:01 p.m., April 25, 2013--The Delaware Rehabilitation Institute (DRI) hosted a Pre-Congress Workshop on Biomechanics and Knee Osteoarthritis at the University of Delaware on April 17. The event was held in conjunction with the 2013 Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) World Congress Program.

Some 70 attendees from around the world rotated among four stations highlighting DRI core facilities currently funded by UD’s National Institutes of Health Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) III grant: gait analysis/knee contact force modeling; cytomechanics (mechanobiology and cellular biomechanics); surgical knee dissection; and PT Labs/Clinic.

Research Stories

Concussion discussion

With a national clamor for more information on head impacts in sports, the University of Delaware is positioned directly in the middle of the concussion discussion.

Peering into cell structures

A University of Delaware research team led by Tatyana Polenova and colleagues from the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope have revealed for the first time, atom by atom, the structure of a protein bound to a microtubule.

DRI director Tom Buchanan, George W. Laird Professor, served as course director, and Lynn Snyder-Mackler, Alumni Distinguished Professor, was co-director.

Participating faculty included Buchanan, Jill Higginson, Lucas Lu, Kurt Manal, Chris Price, Liyun Wang (Department of Mechanical Engineering) and Michael Axe, Dave Logerstedt, Snyder Mackler, and Joe Zeni (Department of Physical Therapy).
