R03 awarded to develop tools for controlling rotator cuff muscle activation using light

The Killian Lab recently received funding from the National Institutes of Health (Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development) to develop in vivo optogenetics tools for the control of skeletal muscle contraction. We will use these tools to identify the role that increased muscle loading plays on enthesis maturation during postnatal … Continue reading R03 awarded to develop tools for controlling rotator cuff muscle activation using light

Recent funding award from UDRF

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.

Killian lab receives Delaware Rehab Institute OA Pilot Grant funding

The Killian Lab recently received a COBRE Osteoarthritis Pilot Grant from the NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (NIH P30-GM103333) and Delaware Rehabilitation Institute to study the role of fibroblast growth factor 18 (FGF18) and muscle loading on the maturation of orthopaedic joints and attachments.  Congratulations!
