Tendon and connective tissue biology: The fellow will focus on how signaling molecules, extracellular matrix, and mechanical forces and impact the specification and differentiation of tendon fibroblasts and progenitor cells. These studies will use a combination of in vitro studies, genetically engineered mice, and biopsies from patients with tendon disorders.
