Welcome to the Schwarz Lab

schwarz lab

Dr. Edward Schwarz is the Burton Professor of Orthopaedics and Director of the Center for Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Rochester Medical Center, in Rochester, NY.  His laboratory focuses on inflammatory bone loss, such as that seen in rheumatoid arthritis, infections, tumor metastasis and wear debris-induced osteolysis around loose prosthetic implants.

Dr. Schwarz is also a leader in orthopaedic biologic therapy and stem cell research, for which his lab has developed a novel passive immunization for MRSA and revitalizing allograft approaches for bone and tendon regeneration.

Dr. Schwarz’s lab is also interested in developing translational in vivo imaging outcome measures include near infrared imaging of lymphatic flow to detect arthritic flare, and cone beam CT to assess bone healing in patients with orthopaedic implants.  More recently, Dr. Schwarz’s lab has combined these biologic therapy technologies and outcome measures with biocompatible carriers and stem cells to generate novel tissue engineering constructs for bone, cartilage, ligament and tendon.
