Soslowsky Laboratory

Welcome to Soslowsky Laboratory

The overall goals of our research program are to determine fundamental relationships and mechanisms of tendon and ligament injury, healing, repair, and regeneration and to use this information to develop and evaluate potential treatment modalities.

Our primary research areas include:
  1. Tendon structure-function relationships and injury-repair
  2. Achilles Tendon Injury and Repair
  3. Rotator cuff injury and repair
  4. The Role of NSAIDs on Tendon Healing
  5. Animal Models for Therapeutics
  6. Spontaneous Pre-Term Birth
Our Environment

The Soslowsky Laboratory strives to create and maintain an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming community. Innovation is spurned by bringing together different backgrounds and perspectives. To reap the benefits of diversity, team members must feel empowered to use their voice. Thus, it is our mission to provide equal opportunities for people of all identities. Through initiatives within our lab and in the broader scientific community, we aim to cultivate a diverse environment in which everyone is welcomed, included, and empowered. Welcome to the Soslowsky Lab!

Statement Against Hate

Colleges across the country are experiencing disturbing acts of hate on their campuses. We are shocked and saddened by the recent events on our own campus, and we recognize that many members of our community are deeply affected. Moreover, the rise in antisemitism and islamophobia fuels hate of all kinds, affecting every one of us. The Soslowsky Lab vehemently condemns these acts and pledges to speak out against all forms of hate. We strive to respect people with differing ideas, experiences, and backgrounds to create a welcoming community.
