University Community Centre (UCC)
Room: McKellar Room
We are pleased to announce that Lori A. Setton, PhD, will be the speaker for the 10th Annual Suzanne M. Bernier Memorial Lecture in Skeletal Biology.
Dr. Setton is the Lucy and Stanley Lopata Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering & Orthopaedic Surgery in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St Louis. Dr Setton’s research is focused on understanding the mechanisms for degeneration and regeneration of soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system, including the intervertebral disc, articular cartilage, and meniscus.
Her transdisciplinary research program combines mechanical engineering, materials synthesis, and cell and molecular biology to develop therapies for musculoskeletal pathologies.
Title: ‘Engineering Drug Depots to Target Local Inflammation’
The lecture series and graduate student award was established to highlight outstanding contributions to the field of musculoskeletal research in honour of Dr. Suzanne Bernier, a wonderful colleague, collaborator and mentor, who passed away in 2007.
