Science Journal highlights AO Research Institute Davos work
22 September 2014
Dr Martin Stoddart presented the work being done on methods to investigate mRNA expression within cells. More specifically, he highlighted a recent ARI publication in Tissue Engineering Part A, which established the ratio of Runx2/Sox9 mRNA expression as an early marker of mesenchymal stem cell differentiation into bone or cartilage. This, combined with live cell sorting, can be used to improve isolation and characterisation of cell populations for the repair of bone and cartilage.
Stoddart has been working at the AO Research Institute Davos (ARI) since 2005; and has been running the Stem Cell focus area since 2009. He is particularly interested in intra-operative cell based therapies for bone and cartilage using the patient's own stem cells.
This demonstrates the excellent work being performed at AO Research Institute Davos, once again. We congratulate Dr Stoddart for his recognition by Science Journal.
The webinar is available on demand at Sience Webinar Series.
