Research Lab

Dr. David Kooyman

Research Description

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an inflammatory pathology that occurs with several other disease states, including Alzheimer’s disease, insulin resistance, numerous ciliopathies, and age-related macular degeneration.  The Kooyman lab is focused on elucidating the pathogenesis of OA as well as studying the interactions between OA and other inflammatory disorders.  In so doing, we hope not only to find successful treatments for OA, but minimize the impact of related diseases.
