Marcelle-Gauvreau Engineering Research Chair in mechanical biomarkers
About the Chair
The knee is the largest and most complex joint in the human body, and problems that affect the knee have major repercussions on the quality of life for those who are so afflicted. At the present time, there is a significant lack of tools for properly evaluating these types of problems.
The mission of the Marcelle-Gauvreau Engineering Research Chair in mechanical biomarkers is to develop new biomarkers to allow for better diagnosis and treatment of knee diseases. These are defined as having characteristics of movement that indicate an abnormal condition.
