Aristos's research in Dr. Levenston's lab examines the effects of using lysyl oxidase in conjunction with photo-chemical bonding to integrate pieces of cartilage. This work can potentially lead to treatments for arthritis and joint trauma.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2014:
