RESEARCH FOCUS

Dr. Jinnah’s research focus is in tissue engineering. His PhD work is based on the hypothesis that porcine cancellous bone, that has been decellularized, will lead to osteointegration and eventual bone remodeling at the site of large osseous defects, and alleviate patient morbidity associated with autograft harvest. Dr. Jinnah collaborates with former Physician Scientist Resident Dr. Bracey on this project.

Additionally, Dr. Jinnah is collaborating with the cancer biology department to use this decellularized bone scaffold as a means of creating a novel animal bone metastasis model. The importance of this would be to find new therapies to counteract the effects of bone metastasis.   In addition to basic science research, Dr. Jinnah is collaborating with other residents and faculty in a number of clinical studies. In particular, he is working on a quality improvement project with Dr. Emory (Vice-Chair) and Dr. Stone (PGY-5) to find predictors of readmission following hip fracture fixation.  

Dr. Jinnah is enrolled in the Molecular Medicine and Translational Science PhD program.
