About the Project
This project aims to establish a mouse model with human-like IVD degeneration via an inducible gene ablation strategy. Furthermore, by crossing with specific strains, how intrinsic cartilage regeneration capacity can modify the degeneration phenotype will be investigated. Assessment will involve a spectrum of histological, molecular, and imaging methodologies. This investigation will generate an important platform to better understand IVD degeneration and enable cost-effective evaluation of regenerative strategies.
