Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Ligament and tendon repair using a specific population of joint progenitor cells
  Prof D Chan
