TBL work at Anthropology Conference

TBL collaborators Maria Fox and Prof. John Polk, of the Department of Anthropology, presented preliminary results at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists annual meeting.  We evaluated subchondral and trabecular bone in micro-CT scans of gorillas, chimpanzees and humans to better identify the relationship between bone morphology and posture.

TBL hosts first shoulder arthroscopy lab

TBL Chief Clinical Coordinator, Dr. Rick Goding along with fellow orthopedic surgeons Dr. Coleman and Dr. Sartowi of Christie Clinic, coordinated a cadaver shoulder arthroplasty lab in the Tissue Biomechanics Lab.  Surgeons were working alongside representatives from Arthrosurface to explore a new technique for shoulder replacement surgery.  Students from the TBL were invited to watch and learn more about orthopedic anatomy and implant design and development.

TBL visits Zimmer-Biomet in Warsaw

Back in January we headed out to Warsaw, IN to tour the Zimmer-Biomet facilities.  Students had a chance to see manufacturing, sterilization, research and testing.  We had a great time…ending the day with some yummy pizza near the Purdue Campus.
