Dr. Perrien joined the VCBB in November 2008. After receiving his Doctorate in Physiology and Biophysics from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, he worked for an orthopaedic tissue engineering company, developing growth factor based drug/device therapies to enhance musculoskeletal repair. Fracture repair and distraction osteogenesis continue to be major areas of investigation. In addition, his efforts include mathematical modeling of structure-function relationships in bone, understanding the skeletal response to mechanical load, and endocrine control of bone mass and turnover.
