      Little, Dianne; Johnson, Stephen; Hash, Jonathan; Olson, Steven A; Estes, Bradley T; Moutos, Franklin T; Lascelles, B Duncan X; ... (8 authors) (J Exp Orthop, 2016-12)
      BACKGROUND: The hip is one of the most common sites of osteoarthritis in the body, second only to the knee in prevalence. However, current animal models of hip osteoarthritis have not been assessed using many of the functional ...
    • Mechanobiology of the meniscus. 

      McNulty, Amy L; Guilak, Farshid (J Biomech, 2015-06-01)
      The meniscus plays a critical biomechanical role in the knee, providing load support, joint stability, and congruity. Importantly, growing evidence indicates that the mechanobiologic response of meniscal cells plays a critical ...
    • Micromechanical Properties of the Extracellular and Pericellular Matrices of Articular Cartilage 

      Wilusz, Rebecca Elizabeth (2013)
      The role of articular cartilage in diarthrodial joints is primarily mechanical as the tissue provides a nearly frictionless, load-bearing surface that supports and distributes forces generated during joint loading. Embedded ...
