Delaware Center for Musculoskeletal Research
The Delaware Center for Musculoskeletal Research (DCMR) supports basic and preclinical research on the central theme of musculoskeletal health—from the level of the joints to the actions of key cells and molecules—with emphasis on understanding the mechanisms by which physical and biological cues influence tissue structure and normal function and dysfunction, and identifying potential therapeutic interventions.
We aim to:
- Accelerate fundamental musculoskeletal research by supporting synergistic and multidisciplinary research projects.
- Galvanize capabilities for musculoskeletal research by establishing a Multiscale Assessments Research Core.
- Amplify the impact of musculoskeletal research through faculty mentoring, expansion, and retention.
