Alayna E. LoiselleAlayna E. Loiselle, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor - Department of Orthopaedics

Dr. Louiselle's lab has developed a novel murine model of intrasynovial FT healing, which mimics many aspects of healing in humans including abundant adhesion formation, impaired ROM and early decrements in tendon strength. We continue to use this model to gain a greater understanding of the cell and molecular processes involved in scar and adhesion formation in order to identify therapeutic targets to improve FT healing.

Jiebo LuoJiebo Luo, Ph.D.

Professor - Department of Computer Science

Jiebo Luo joined the University of Rochester in Fall 2011 after over fifteen prolific years at Kodak Research Laboratories, where he was a Senior Principal Scientist leading research and advanced development. He has been involved in numerous technical conferences, including serving as the program co-chair of ACM Multimedia 2010IEEE CVPR 2012and IEEE ICIP 2017. He has served on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology, Pattern Recognition, Machine Vision and Applications, and Journal of Electronic Imaging.  Dr. Luo is a Fellow of the SPIEIEEE, and IAPR, and a member of ACM, AAAI, and AAAS.

Michael Maloney

Michael D. Maloney, M.D.

Professor - Department of Orthopaedics

Dr. Maloney's medical practice is broad, including reconstructive surgery of the knee, shoulder, and elbow, and arthroscopy of the knee, shoulder, and elbow for patients of all ages in the Rochester, NY region and beyond. He is the Team Physician for the Rochester Red Wings and area college sports teams.

William M. ManiscalcoWilliam M. Maniscalco, M.D.

Professor - Department of Pediatrics, Neonatology

Dr. Maniscalco studies pulmonary microvascular development in lung injury. Using various animal models, including a non-human primate model of BPD, this work examines the effects of oxygen and ventilation of immature lung on the development of alveolar capillaries. The major goals of the research are to characterize microvascular development in lung injury and investigate angiogenic and angiostatic regulators in normal and injured lung. Recent work has linked expression of inflammatory CXC chemokine mediators, which regulate angiogenesis and are part of the pathophysiology of BPD, to impaired lung microangiogenesis.

Thomas G. MyersThomas G. Myers, M.D.

Assistant Professor - Department of Orthopaedics

Dr. Myers is a Board Certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in adult reconstruction (total hip and knee replacement). In addition to authoring numerous publications on topics related to total knee arthroplasty, ankle and hindfoot fusions in diabetic and non-diabetic patients and osteonecrosis of the hip, he frequently lectures on topics related to adult reconstruction/orthopaedics.

Gregg T. NicandriGregg T. Nicandri, M.D.

Associate Professor - Department of Orthopaedics

Dr. Nicandri's medical practice focuses on the care of knee, shoulder, and elbow injuries.
