Welcome to the Cartilage Repair and Replacement Homepage.

Joint pain due to cartilage damage is a problem for millions around the world. Beacause of an aging population and increasing obesity rates, joint based therapies are poised for growth. The purpose of this website is to provide a technical, quantitative evaluation of currently available treatments for cartilage damage. Emerging techniques are also discussed.

This website was designed by Brown University Undergraduates Catherine Auriemma, Benjamin Frank, Aleksey Novikov, Adam Rago, and Alyssa Ricker for Biology 108, Organ Replacement. Material current as of May 2006.
