Dr. Miller, BioEngineering Advisor on Osteochondral Repairs Capstone

One of the doctors at Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is partnering with undergraduates to improve osteochondral repairs in unstable joints. Dr. Adam Miller, MD is an orthopaedic surgeon serving the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. Since Dr. Miller focuses on foot and ankle injuries, he is able to serve as an advisor to an ambitious group of bio-engineering college students.

University of Maryland’s Fischell Department of Bioengineering (BioE) touted sixteen impressive capstone projects. Dr. Miller’s team of students designed a customizable 3D tissue-engineering scaffold for specific applications.

Osteochondral Repairs CapstoneWith his guidance, the students’ 2014 Senior Capstone project undertook an ambitious to a challenging problem. They were able to design a customizable three-dimensional tissue-engineering scaffold. Their scaffold supports full thickness osteochondral repairs in joints with mechanical instability.

Dr. Miller was excited to serve as an adviser. He congratulated the students on a well earned Best Business Design Overall award.
