15 January 15, 2001 Yasha J. Kresh Professor and Research Director, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Cardiovascular Biophysics & Computing, MCP Hahnemann & Drexel University Complex cellular network dynamics (Partner: Banu Onaral) Cardiac regenerative medicine IMPLANT RESEARCH INITIATIVE The implant research effort is the result of a strategic research alliance of Drexel University with two medical partners, MCP Hahnemann and Thomas Jefferson Universities and two corporate partners, Exponent, Inc., and Stryker Howmedica Osteonics Corporation. Director: Steven Kurtz, Drexel University & Exponent Inc Associate Directors: Michele Marcolongo, Drexel University & Av Edidin, Howmedica Corp The goal of this initiative is to conduct research on implantable medical devices and to provide insight back to the surgical and engineering communities for improving the longevity of implants. The initial focus of is on orthopaedic total joint replacement and spinal implants. Future directions will include ophthalmic, dental, cardiovascular, and urologic implant research. Other Members of the Cellular Tissue Engineering Team (Cont.)
