Research

  • How to maximize the beneficial effects of whole body vibration? The recent realization that bone actually is also an endocrine organ has permitted the design and gradual implementation of protocols to leverage this property. Our research group is also focused on the harvesting and enrichment of adult mesenchymal stem cells from common sources such as fat for therapeutic uses. In particular, the healing and repair of complex wounds.
