MTR Laboratory
  Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Joseph W. Freeman, PhD, Associate Professor

Welcome to the MoTR Laboratory


The Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration (MoTR) Laboratory is a part of the Rutgers University Department of Biomedical Engineering. The MoTR Laboratory is located in the Busch Campus on the campus of Rutgers University. We primarily focus on the repair and regeneration of tissue, mainly musculoskeletal tissue, through the use of tissue engineering techniques. We also investigate mechanisms of tissue damage and healing, cancer development, and molecular modeling of structural proteins. The MoTR Laboratory is located at 599 Taylor Road in Piscataway, NJ
