Training Group(s):

Active Mentor - currently hosting PULSe students for laboratory rotations and recruiting PULSe students into the laboratory; serves on preliminary exam committees

Current Research Interests:

The long-term goal of our research program is determine the molecular mechanisms contributing to the development of tendinopathies in order to develop effective treatment strategies. We are determining the mechanisms responsible for the increase in tendinopathy risk in diabetic patients and older adults. We are particularly interested in: 1) the role of advanced glycation end-products in the development of diabetic tendinosis, 2) the role of estrogen in tendon health, and 3) how a combined nutrition/exercise approach can improve tendon properties in older adults. My laboratory uses both human and rodent models to address our research goals in a bench-to-bedside manner.
