PhD (Queen's University)


Professor Venne received his PhD in Anatomy & Cell Biology from Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, in 2017. During his PhD, he studied osteophytes, which are bone spurs that grow in the joints or spine and can be a marker for osteoarthritis. Prof Venne also developed an interest in studying fascia, a network of connective tissue that enmeshes all the internal structures in the body, including organs, bones, muscles, and blood vessels. Fascia not only has a role in organizing and connecting these bodily components but can also contribute to disorders, such as chronic pain, in ways that are only starting to be understood. 

Current research: 

Development of an experimental animal model of mechanically-induced osteophyte formation and radiological evaluation of mature osteophyte microarchitecture.
