Yu Ru Shih
Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery

Current Research Interests

The long term goal of my research is to develop effective, innovative, and safe treatments for musculoskeletal conditions including fracture, osteoarthritis, bone cancer, and the associated pain. This is achieved by understanding the fundamental biology using animal models, animal/human tissues, and in vitro cultures that involves primary or stem cell-derived models. These understandings form the basis for identification of therapeutic targets to develop treatments that promote tissue repair and pain relief.
