Thelen receives NIH grant for ACL research

Mechanical Engineering Professor Darryl Thelen and collaborator Yasin Dhaher of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago have received a $518,066 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study why patients who have had ACL reconstruction surgery tend to develop osteoarthritis. The researchers will use computer simulations to better understand how patients’ skeletal movement and variations in surgery contribute to long-term wear on their knee cartilage.
