In this webinar presented by Aurora Scientific, Matthew Borkowski and Dylan Sarver discuss how to characterize the structural and functional properties of tendon.
Specifically, Mr. Borkowski describes the engineering behind the multi-purpose Aurora Scientific Dual Mode Lever — a fast actuator and sensitive force transducer in one — and how this device can be used to study connective tissue.
Following, Mr. Sarver discusses his current research focused on sex-related differences in the structural and functional status of Tendon, from macromolecular structural properties to transcriptomic, proteomic, and cell biology of resident tendon fibroblasts. He explains why tendon research is important, reviews methodology for investigating tendon structure and function, and discusses research findings supporting sex-related differences in tendon.
Key topics covered during this webinar will include…
- How to use The Dual-Mode Lever to perfom demanding stress/strain assays
- What is a tendon, and why is tendon research important
- How to characterize the structural and functional status of tendon
- Case Study: investigating sex-related differences in tendon
