The 2022 Gordon Conference (GRC) on Musculoskeletal Biology and Bioengineering, themed “Accelerating Discovery in the Musculoskeletal System,” featured ideas and emerging technologies that explore our progress in understanding the integrated function of the musculoskeletal system in development, at homeostasis, and in aging and disease. This interdisciplinary conference aimed to increase the diversity of our field and to drive the exchange of innovative ideas to advance the pace of discovery and develop novel treatments for musculoskeletal disease.
The Sharma Lab had a strong presence at the 2022 GRC, with Dr. Folly Patterson, a postdoctoral student, Tolu Ajayi, a fifth year PhD student, and Jessica Aldrich, a fourth year PhD student, presenting posters on our research on innovative approaches for the treatment and evaluation of osteoarthritis.
Dr. Folly Patterson presented her work titled “Immunomodulatory and Chondroprotective Effects of CD200 on Macrophages and Chondrocytes In Vitro”
Tolu Ajayi presented her work titled “Application of Magnetic Particle Imaging Technology to Evaluate Nanoparticle Fate”
Jessica Aldrich presented her work titled “Cellular Update and Retention of an ROS-Scavenging Biomaterial as a Chondroprotective Therapy for Osteoarthritis”
