David A. and Heidi Kirk Duffy Cell Biology Laboratory
The David A. and Heidi Kirk Duffy Cell Biology Laboratory is located in the Department of Orthopaedics at Rhode Island Hospital and the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
Our laboratory focuses on the effects of biophysical and biochemical factors on chondrogenesis and the development of tissue-engineered cartilage. Engineered cartilage tissues can be used to restore cartilage function after traumatic cartilage injuries and may prevent diseases such as arthritis and osteoarthritis.
David E. and Heidi Kirk Duffy were awarded the 2012 Rhode Island Hospital President’s Pursuit of Excellence (PPoE) Individual Champion Award. This video thanks them for the support of our laboratory and showcases our laboratory in action.
