Frederique and Cushla awarded Marsden grant


Congratulations to Frederique Vanholsbeeck and Cushla McGoverin who have just been awarded a Marsden grant from the Royal Society Te Apārangi to work with Sue MacGlashan and Ashvin Thambyah on developing an ‘mechano-structural’ assessment system for understanding the physiology of joint tissue. Using optical coherence tomography and vibrational spectroscopy, they will assess articular cartilage under compression to allow a better understanding of onset of osteoarthritis. This project will continue the work of Matthew Goodwin's PhD thesis.
