Catherine K Kuo
Associate Professor, Fischell Department of Bioengineering

Research Interests: Dr. Kuo’s research integrates developmental biology with materials science and engineering to inform tendon regenerative medicine strategies with mechanisms of embryonic tendon development. 

Her lab characterizes structure-property relationships of embryonic tendons during development to identify key regulators of tendon formation that may serve as therapeutic targets to enhance adult tendon regeneration. She also studies the mechanobiology of embryonic tendon development, with the goal of developing in utero interventions to prevent and treat congenital musculoskeletal birth deformities.
