The Regenerative Orthopedics group is a young, multidisciplinary, and international research team embedded within the department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University, the Netherlands. The research laboratory is situated in the Regenerative Medicine Center Utrecht (RMCU) which is located at Utrecht Science Park.
The group is led by Prof. Marianna Tryfonidou and focuses on osteoarthritis and low back pain due to intervertebral disc degeneration with a clear focus on clinical translation. The research follows the One Health-One Medicine principle and aims to make an impact on on the health of animals and human patients with low back pain and knee joint pain.
