Research Interest: I am interested in understanding key molecular pathways in articular cartilage affected by the endocannabinoid system or cannabinoids at large. My work focuses on the highly prevalent age-associated diseases of the joint called Osteoarthritis.
Specific Research Topics on Cannabinoids:
Studying the effect on D9-THC on post-traumatic OA development
Studying the effect on D9-THC on age-related OA development
Key Words: Cartilage, Inflammation, MMP, D9-THC, Osteoarthritis severity, Sirt1
