Ryan Locke (1st year PhD student in Dr. Killian’s lab) and Professor Killian co-authored a review, published in ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering, on the multiscale, morphological, and mechanical characteristics of the fibrocartilage attachment. This review discusses historical and recent clinical approaches to treating enthesis injury and explores new technological advancements in tissue-engineered biomaterials that have shown promise in preclinical studies.
