Creating cartilage from stem cells

About the project:

Osteoarthritis is caused by erosion of articular cartilage surfaces, critical for joint function. Current tissue regeneration approaches  are  inadequate.  The  aim  of  this  project  is  to  produce high quality living cartilage to repair damaged cartilage using stem cells. Our approach uses a novel method we have developed to direct human stem cells to form high quality cartilage that recapitulates the  biochemical qualities of natural cartilage.
