Stanford Soft Tissue Biomechanics Lab

Biomechanics and Mechanobiology of Musculoskeletal Soft Tissues

Research in the Soft Tissue Biomechanics Laboratory addresses the function, degeneration and repair of musculoskeletal soft tissues, with a focus on meniscal fibrocartilage and articular cartilage. We are particularly interested in the complex interactions between biophysical and biochemical cues in controlling cell behavior, the roles of these interactions in degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis, and development of tissue engineered model systems for studying cell behavior. A laboratory within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, the STBL is directed by Marc Levenston.
