Congratulations to Panth Doshi and Madison Bates who both won Best Presentation at the VCU Undergraduate Research Symposium today!! They both did a great job presenting their work and answering questions.
We are excited to announce Dr. Puetzer has been accepted as an NIH Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation Engineering Career Development Program (IREK12) scholar. The program's goal is to support and mentor junior faculty interested in developing careers based in rehabilitation research. Specifically, this program will provide funding and mentorship for the Puetzer lab to take their research in how mechanical forces guide cells to create the underlying structure of tendons and ligaments, and apply that research to physical therapy to help with regeneration and repair of torn ligaments and tendons throughout the body.

We are keeping spirits high and research rolling even with social distancing! Officially hitting Brady Bunch status on Zoom meant it was time for a new Lab picture.
Congratulations to undergrad Panth Doshi for being awarded a Undergraduate Fellowship from the VCU Center for Clinical and Translational Research for his work on Combating Aging-Induced Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs) in Tendons with Tensile Loading! His goal is to find a loading regime which stimulates cells to breakdown AGE crosslinks that accumulate with age, helping to maintain the health of tendons.
Congratulations to undergrad Madison Bates who was selected for the Goldwater Scholarship, a premier national scholarship to support and honor undergraduates interested in pursuing research careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
Way to go Madison!! Read more about it here.
We had a fantastic time at the annual Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting in Phoenix, Az. The boys did a great job presenting the lab's first podium and posters!!.
Congratulations to Madison Bates for winning 3rd place poster at the VCU Engineering Undergraduate Research Symposium for her work on investigating the effect of Lysyl oxidase induced crosslinking on hierarchical collagen fiber formation!!!
We are excited to announce the Puetzer Lab has received a 2 year pilot grant from the Orthoregeneration Network (ON) Foundation to investigate the effects of developmental mechanical cues in the formation of zonal tendon-to-bone attachments for Rotator Cuff repair. We can't wait to get going on this project! Click here for more information
Austin and Ethan did a great job presenting their work at the 9th Annual International Symposium on Regenerative Rehabilitation!
We had a great time presenting our research for the first time ever at BMES in Philly! Austin and Ethan did great at their podium presentations, and Madison rocked her poster presentation
