About Us

Welcome to the Delaware ACL Research Group! We are a team of healthcare professionals studying the impact of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury across the lifespan and changing the landscape of ACL rehabilitation with our groundbreaking research.

The ACL Research Group at the University of Delaware originated under the guidance of Dr. Lynn Snyder-Mackler. Over the course of her career, Dr. Snyder-Mackler contributed to over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles as well as multiple book chapters and countless scientific and professional presentations. Dr. Karin Silbernagel serves as the current PI of the Delaware ACL Research Group as we continue to assess the impact of ACL injury and surgery and develop treatment interventions to improve post-operative outcomes.

Current Projects

Donor Site Tendon Morphology after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (ACLR)

The purpose of the study is to understand the healing process of the donor site tendon after an autograft harvest for ACLR.

Collaborations Across Disciplines, Institutions, and Countries

The Delaware ACL Research Group collaborates with many research groups, both within and outside of the university community. Currently, we are in the final year of a 15+ year NIH-funded study in collaboration with the Norwegian Research Center for Active Rehabilitation.
