Lisa A. Fortier is the James Law Professor of Surgery and Director of Equine Programs at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. She received her DVM from Colorado State University and completed her PhD and surgical residency training at Cornell University. She is boarded with the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and practices equine orthopedic surgery at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and at the Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists in Elmont, New York.  Her laboratory has a particular interest in translational research including the prevention of post-traumatic osteoarthritis. In addition, Dr. Fortier’s research program investigates the clinical application of stem cells and biologics such as platelet rich plasma and bone marrow concentrate for cartilage repair and tendinosis.  She has received the Jaques Lemans Award from the International Cartilage Repair Society, the New Investigator Research Award from the Orthopaedic Research Society, the Pfizer Research Award for Research Excellence from Cornell University, and the SUNY Chancellors Award for Scholarship and Creative Activities. Dr. Fortier has served as the Vice President of the International Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Society, and President of the International Cartilage Repair Society.
