User Bio

The Center of Research Translation for the Study of Osteoarthritis (CORT) at University of California San Francisco is a National Institutes of Health - National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skid Diseases (NIH-NIAMS) funded research center. Our goals are to translate new non-invasive quantitative imaging biomarkers that describe the biological processes in osteoarthritis, from proof of principle to studies in humans and widely available clinical tools directly impacting patient care, and to develop models and relationships between the quantitative imaging measures and functional biomechanics, not only for monitoring and diagnosing osteoarthritis, but also for assessing pharmaceutical or surgical therapies and interventions.

The inter-disciplinary group includes physicists, engineers, physical therapists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists, working towards translational medicine
