Olivia is interested in the effects of both the structural and biochemical cues provided by the extracellular matrix on modulating cell phenotype and inflammation. She is currently working to create microcarriers to expand chondrocytes while maintaining their phenotype and direct the differentiation of stem cells. Olivia is also investigating the use of MSCs in combination with human amniotic membrane for osteoarthritis (OA) treatments in the context of modulating inflammation and OA progression.
