Dr. Boosinger's research interests include the pathophysiology of Campylobacter sp. and Helicobacter sp. infections in the gastrointestinal tract of pigs. Studies have been conducted in gnotobiotic, specific pathogen free and conventional pigs using light microscopy, electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry. The pig has been studied as a model for human infections with Helicobacter sp. Recent additional research programs have included studies of the pathophysiology of hard tissues. These studies have included evaluation of intra-articular anti-adhesion compounds, virus inactivation procedures for bone grafts, cruciate ligament allografts, safety of synthetic cruciate ligaments and carbon based composite hip protheses and cryopreserved meniscal allografts.
