Martha Murray is a surgeon-scientist with a strong interest in injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee.
She spends half of her time treating patients with these injuries, and the other half in the laboratory, developing new ways to treat ACL injuries and to improve patient outcomes.
Over the past 20 years she has taken serious steps in improving the lives of patients with these and similar injuries.
Her current research focuses on defining the effect of age on the capacity for ligament healing, and how to help older patients heal as effectively as young patients. Martha has taught undergraduates, graduate, and post-doctoral fellows at Harvard Medical School, and around the United States as a visiting professor.
