Abstract

From the earliest days of my career in orthopaedic surgery and chemical engineering, I have been fascinated with the prospect of regrowing bone and connective tissue to help patients regain mobility. It is now my privilege to be leading teams of scientists not only in my own lab but throughout the UConn Health Center who are pursuing promising research in this area. This includes Dr. David Rowe who has devoted most of his career to the study of osteogenesis imperfecta and is now pioneering new approaches for bone and tissue regeneration through the use of adult and embryonic stem cells. These efforts have received robust extramural support and have fostered collaborative efforts with scientific colleagues throughout the University of Connecticut – the top public university in New England. Like you, I am confident that teams on campuses across the country will continue to make breakthroughs to improve care for generations to come. I hope you will enjoy learning more
