10th Annual Suzanne Bernier Lecture in Skeletal Biology

We are pleased to invite all members of the University community to the 10th Annual Suzanne M. Bernier Memorial Lecture in Skeletal Biology, delivered this year by Lori A. Setton, PhD, Lucy and Stanley Lopata Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering & Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University, St Louis

Date: May 1, 2017   2:00-4:00 pm

Title:  Engineering Drug Depots to Target Local Inflammation

Location:  McKellar Room | UCC 290 | University Community Centre | Reception to follow at The Wave. All Welcome

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. 

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.
