Role of Scapula in the Treatment of Rotator Cuff Tears (Orthopaedic Biomechanics)

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

A summer research position is available under the guidance of Prof. Katherine Reuther in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The global objective of the research is to develop strategies to improve rotator cuff tendon healing following repair. The project may include basic science and clinical research. The student will develop techniques (software and hardware) for quantification of shoulder motion in a clinical setting. The student will also participate in data collection and analysis for an ongoing clinical study designed to understand the mechanical mechanisms of tendon repair failure.
