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.
