Dr. Korhonen has vast experience in musculoskeletal biomechanics, imaging and modelling at cellular, molecular, tissue and joint levels. Currently his research aims primarily at 1) revealing new biomechanically and biochemically driven mechanisms leading to osteoarthritis and 2) developing novel imaging and in silico modelling methods for osteoarthritis prognosis and treatment planning. Dr. Korhonen has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and supervised 28 PhD theses, and his research has been funded by EU (e.g. ERC), Academy of Finland, Business Finland, and other national and international foundations and organizations.
