Lori Setton, PhD

Lucy & Stanley Lopata Distinguished Professor and Chair, WashU Biomedical Engineering

Combines methods of engineering & biology to regulate disc and cartilage health and healing

Her research focuses on the role of mechanical factors in the degeneration and repair of soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system, including the intervertebral disc, articular cartilage and meniscus. In the lab, her work focuses on engineering and evaluating novel materials for tissue regeneration and drug delivery to treat musculoskeletal disease.
