AREAS OF SPECIAL INTEREST
Dr. Bansal’s main interests lay in educating and mentoring undergraduate students in both the classroom and through laboratory experiences. When teaching, she utilizes active learning pedagogy to create dynamic and example-based learning environments.
Dr. Bansal’s research interests focus on how meniscus injury and treatment impacts the joint as a whole organ. To that end, she is interested in the mechanobiology of the meniscus, particularly with respect to inflammation and load maintenance after injury. She also works in the preclinical/translational space through the development of biomaterial analogs of orthopedic soft tissues.
