Killian Lab

The Killian Lab is a research group in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Michigan Medical School. We aim to identify key regulators of musculoskeletal growth that can be leveraged to improve musculoskeletal growth and healing. We study the cell and tissue-scale mechanisms underlying pediatric and young adult orthopedic disorders (such as joint instability, contracture, and overuse) using micro-computed tomography, histology, molecular and cell biology, transgenic mouse models, and mechanical testing.
