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!
