Current Research

Robert Sah’s research focuses on the biomechanical function and failure of articular cartilage in joints and on the development of biological restoration therapies. In addition to his research, he developed a collaborative research program in which undergraduates work with graduate students, medical students, postdoctoral fellows, and academic and industry researchers to study, fabricate, and test cartilage and biological joints. Sah worked to create new courses and instructional materials in regenerative medicine for undergraduates, including instructional models and research opportunities with practical laboratory tools for tissue engineering. He is also increasing the awareness of joint bioengineering in the community by engaging K–12 students and teachers through field trips, hands-on bench experiences, and summer courses or internships for high school students.
