Dr. David Pierce awarded NSF grant

Professors Pierce (PI) and Neu (Co-PI, University of Colorado Boulder) win award from NSF for $399,950. The collaborative project, “Biomechanical Simulations of Progressing Osteoarthritis to Advance Understanding and Therapies” aims to understand the influence of intra-tissue stress distributions on the progression of osteoarthritis (OA) in human cartilage by leveraging new mechanical and imaging experiments, novel simulations of evolving virtual human cartilage in vivo, and longitudinal Magnetic Resonance Images (MRIs) from the NIH-funded Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) database.
