Dr Vaida Glatt
Dr. Vaida Glatt is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, USA. Previously, she was a Senior Research Fellow in the Trauma Research Group at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. She did her Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Julius Wolff Institute (Berlin, Germany), and her PhD research was carried out at the Center for Advanced Orthopedic Studies at Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA). Dr. Glatt’s primary interest is in developing novel strategies for the treatment and regeneration of bone. Specifically, investigating the influence of the mechanical environment on bone regeneration and repair. Dr Glatt was the first in the field to do this by a process called Reversed Dynamisation, which is a counter intuitive method to what had been done in prior experimental and clinical studies. Moreover, her secondary research interest is investigating the influence of hematoma in bone healing. She is currently the Chair of the Media Relations and Communications Committee of the Orthopedic Research Society. Dr. Glatt is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma (JOT), a member of the International Review Panel for the European Cells and Material Journal (eCM), and has editorial responsibilities with over 10 international journals.
