Interdisciplinary Approach to Identify People at Risk for Knee Osteoarthritis
January 13, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EST
The Department of Kinesiology presents a research presentation from Dr. Matthew Harkey.
Matthew Harkey is a musculoskeletal researcher whose goal is to identify people at increased risk for knee osteoarthritis to better target interventions that prevent the onset or progression of disability. His talk will focus on his recent laboratory- and epidemiology-based research studies using an interdisciplinary approach with techniques from biomechanics, exercise physiology and structural imaging to identify people at risk for knee osteoarthritis.
