Project

By the year 2050, more than 130 million people in the world will suffer from osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease. Current treatments only involve reduction of pain and/or improvement of function of affected joints but do not prevent or reverse joint damage. My project is focused on developing a novel hyaluronan-based hydrogel system for pain modulation and delivery of disease-modifying therapeutics for the treatment of osteoarthritis. I will investigate strategies to efficiently deliver these molecules in knee joints and explore other potential applications.
