Congratulations to Emily, Stephen and their other co-authors on their accepted manuscript in Acta Biomateriala titled “Proteoglycan Removal by Chondroitinase ABC Improves Injectable Collagen Gel Adhesion to Annulus Fibrosus”. The article describes the use of chondroitinase to remove proteoglycans from the surface of annulus fibrosus tissue to increase the adhesion of annular repair therapies. Emily is an undergraduate student at Cornell studying biomedical engineering about to enter her senior year, and Stephen is a PhD student in biomedical engineering in his fifth year. Congrats!
