Recently published work from the Killian Lab describes the role of Scleraxis in the formation of a symmetric callus following long bone fracture. The paper, titled: "Loss of scleraxis in mice leads to geometric and structural changes in cortical bone, as well as asymmetry in fracture healing," was accepted for publication in The FASEB Journal. Authors … Continue reading New paper from Killianlab: Role of Scleraxis in fracture healing
Dr. Killian recently received funding from the University of Delaware Research Foundation to identify the role of chondrogenesis, driven by fibroblast growth factor 18, in tendon-to-bone attachment maturation and healing. This research will support graduate level work in basic and translational musculoskeletal research.
