Dr. Mwale’s lab conducts cutting-edge research on tissue engineering of IVD . The long-term goal is to promote nucleus pulposus repair using growth factors, scaffolds and mesenchymal stem cells in the degenerated IVD. Dr. Mwale’s laboratory is also studying quantitative MRI as a diagnostic tool of IVD matrix composition and integrity. Quantitative MRI can be used as an accurate and non-invasive diagnostic tool in the detection and quantification of matrix composition and material properties of the human IVD and can, therefore, become a very important diagnostic and treatment assessment tool in determining the functional state of the disc.
