From the August issue: Distinct Pattern of Inflammation of Articular Cartilage and the Synovium in Early and Late Hip Femoroacetabular Impingement

Podcast: Listen to Dr. Pascual-Garrido discuss her article in the August issue.


Dr. Pascual, MD, PhD is a clinician scientist, assistant professor, orthopedic surgeon at Washington University in St. Louis in the department of Adult reconstruction and Hip preservation. Dr. Pascual’s practice focus on hip pathology with specific focus in hip pre-arthritic disorders such as hip FAI and hip dysplasia. Additionally, she also leads a lab that is investigating the mediators of OA in hip FAI with specific focus in inflammation, epigenetics and transcriptomes. She has published 90+ papers. She has received numerous grants including the AOSSM-Sanofi Grant, the OREF/Goldberg Research Grant in Arthritis and several awards including the AAOS Award of Excellence, the William-Harris Career Development Award and the Lee T Ford Career Achievement Award. She has recently been pre-awarded with a K08  Clinical Investigator Award from NIH-NIAMS to investigate in depth the role of epigenetic changes and mediators of OA in hip FAI.
