Mauck Laboratory

Welcome to Mauck Laboratory

The goals of our research program in soft tissue mechanobiology and tissue engineering are to understand the physiologic and patho-physiologic processes that regulate the formation, maturation, and adult function of soft connective tissues.  We believe that such an understanding will better direct our efforts to generate functional tissue replacements with a particular focus on articular cartilage and the knee meniscus. Our program utilizes various mechanical and biological testing modalities, scaffold fabrication techniques, and bioreactor culture conditions to explore these issues in both animal and human model systems. Specific information about current work in the Mauck Lab can be found by visiting the Ongoing Research Projects page. Find us on Twitter!
