Dr. Margolis is an assistant professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and did his MD/Ph.D. at the University of Arizona. His Ph.D. thesis was directed by Drs. Lien, Lai and Szivek and explored bone changes in Calbindin-D28k and Carbonic Anhydrase II deficient mice. After completing his Ph.D., he remained active in biomedical engineering during residency and when he returned to Arizona after completing his clinical training. He returned to the University of Arizona to spend more time working on bone tissue engineering with Dr. Szivek. They are currently working on a DoD-funded project to regenerate large segments of load-bearing bone.
This talk will briefly review basic bone biology and discuss the pathway to our current approach which combines patient-specific 3D printing, autologous adipose-derived stem cells and implantable electronics to induce rapid bone formation.
Hosts: Dr. Beth Hutchinson and Dr. Russ Witte
