February 4-8, 2022. After nearly 2 years, part of the Connizzo Lab made their way down to Tampa, Florida for the 2022 Annual Meeting of the ORS in person! We had a lot of fun networking with friends, new and old, sharing our science, and learning about what's going on in the orthopaedic research community. Congratulations to Emma and Anthony on their first poster presentations. We are very proud! Looking forward to next year's annual meeting in Dallas!
ORS Abstracts Accepted!
December 2, 2021. Congratulations to graduate students Anthony and Emma on their abstract acceptances for the 2022 ORS Annual Meeting. Anthony will be presenting "MRL/MpJ Tendon Explants Maintain Greater Matrix Synthesis in Response to Stress Deprivation" and Emma will be presenting "Induction and Characterization of Cellular Senescence in Tendon Explants." We are all looking forward to our first trip and conference as a lab!

Virtual ORS 2021
February 12-16, 2021. The Connizzo lab attended the Orthopaedic Research Society (virtual) Annual Meeting this year. Dr. Connizzo presented in the Tendon Mechanics session regarding her work with explant mechanohomeostasis and aging, and a project led by MIT undergraduate Emily Larson regarding glucose levels in explant health was presented in poster format. In addition, we attended career development sessions, scientific symposia/workshops, and many virtual social events. Looking forward to next year's annual meeting in Tampa!
