This week is off to a great start with the addition of Max Lakumi and Doug Foote to the lab. Max is with us for 10 weeks as part of the UO’s SPUR program and is currently a undergraduate student in Biology at Georgia State University (class of 2019). Doug recently defended his Masters thesis at the University of Illinois at Chicago and will now begin working on his PhD in our lab.  They will be busy this summer working with us on some exciting cell culture experiments.

Congratulations to Chelsey Policar and Nathan Bigot presenting research from our recently completed clinical trial on EAA treatment in TKA patients. Chelsey presented her work using MIPAV to analyze over 100 MRI images to quantify mid-thigh muscle changes before and after surgery while Nathan talked about his work using immunohistochemistry to characterize the potential contribution(s) of inflammatory (M1) vs. regenerative (M2) macrophages and satellite cell numbers in the same cohort of patients.
