Our world-renowned researchers are studying musculoskeletal challenges at the molecular and cellular level. These discoveries are powering new innovations and cellular therapies designed to target pain at its biological source, addressing both the mechanical symptoms of orthopaedic conditions and their underlying physiological causes. In doing so, it is our ultimate vision to make enduring challenges like chronic back pain, infection, excessive scarring, and fibrosis a thing of the past.
