Griffith Laboratory Research Collaborations
Our collaborators serve on thesis committees and host visiting students and postdocs for joint projects.
Alan Wells, MD, PhD, Associate Chair of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center http://path.upmc.edu/divisions/wells-lab/wells.htm - biomaterials control of mesenchymal stem cell migration processes in wound healing; epderimal growth factor signaling and tissue engineering.
George Muschler, MD , Orthopedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic http://www.lerner.ccf.org/bme/muschler/ - integration of macroscopic and molecular cues in bone tissue engineering with marrow-derived stem and progenitor cells. Projects are in collaboration with the Armed Forces Institute for Regnerative Medicine http://www.afirm-rccc.org/. In this project we also collaborate extensively with Dr Sunil Saini at Therics, Inc (Integra) on fabrication of saffolds.
