    McCarthy MM, Maher, SA, Warren RF. The Role of Mechanical Loading on Chondrocyte Integration into a Porous Poly(Vinyl) Alcohol Scaffold Implant. Thomas Wickiewicz, MD Resident Research Grant Award.

Previous work in Dr. Maher’s laboratory has shown that porous PVA implants allow chondrocyte ingrowth into a bovine cartilage explant. This project investigated the impact of mechanical loading on the explant model. The culmination is a manuscript titled, “Mechanical Loading Negatively Impacts Cartilage-Scaffold Integration.”
