Welcome!

Teamwork, collaboration, and passion for scientific discovery fuel the spirit of Ho lab. The lab investigates strain-mediated adaptation in joints, tissues, and soft-hard tissue interfaces. Strains within tissues are transduced by the cells to produce the needed extracellular matrix proteins to meet functional demands. Ho lab utilizes an interdisciplinary approach of mechanics and materials science to investigate problems of joint biomechanics and biomineralization. Learn more »
