Dr. MacLeod's laboratory studies biological and biomedical aspects of the musculoskeletal system, with an emphasis on the growth and maturation of articular cartilage, the development of osteoarthritis, repair of cartilage lesions, and the effects of intra-articular glucocorticoid medications on chrondrocyte function.
