Dyment Laboratory

Welcome to Dyment Laboratory

The primary goals of our research program are directed towards understanding the genetic, cellular, and mechanical mechanisms that regulate normal development, disease, and repair of tissues in the joint. Our lab focuses on 1) identifying the resident progenitor populations that contribute to normal growth, healing, and repair, 2) characterizing the mechanisms that control the expansion and differentiation of these cells, and 3) ascertaining the phenotypical markers that define the stages of differentiation from early stem/progenitors to mature cell types. These goals in combination will guide future therapeutic strategies and provide success criteria to assess efficacy moving forward. For more information, please see our Ongoing Research Projects page or Research Features article.

Congratulations to Dr. Dyment, Dr. Kuntz, and Dr. Soslowsky for their collaborative work with many others on the manuscript "Preclinical Tendon and Ligament Models: Beyond the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement) to 5W1H (Why, Who, What, Where, When, How)" which was accepted for publication in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research! This review summarizes the perspectives of experts for eight surgical small and large animal models of rotator cuff tear, flexor tendon transection, anterior cruciate ligament tear, and Achilles tendon injury using the framework: "Why, Who, What, Where, When, and How"

Congrats to Mary Kate Evans for winning the Tendon Section Podium Award at the 2022 Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting in Tampa, FL!
