Prof. Jos Malda and coworkers published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology

Prof. Jos Malda and coworkers publish on a new way of thinking about the regeneration of articular cartilage. Cartilage has a limited healing capacity; however, studies into the basic biological characteristics, formation and structural maintenance of the cartilage collagen network are providing explanations for the failure of current therapeutic approaches, urging us to rethink our […]
