Research and clinical trials

The Bioengineering Biomechanics Laboratory at Northwell Health's Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is working toward better understanding spine disease through research and clinical trials. The laboratory examines the role of inflammation and mechanical stress in disc degeneration and conducts research on stem cell behavior in the disc environment in both healthy and diseased states. Funded research is also being conducted using disc tissue obtained from surgery to analyze the molecular mechanisms and correlates of disc disease and to understand the process of degeneration on a molecular level.
