Providing an All-Inclusive Research Program
Our Orthopaedics Department is proud to offer a comprehensive research program to orthopaedic students. The scientific environment of the department is outstanding, with strong interactions between basic and clinical scientists.
Our research areas span from molecular to organ levels of bone and joint function. We study cells, tissues, whole bones and joints in order to advance disease prevention and improve the repair of fractures and failed joints. Our team of faculty and staff includes:
- Biomedical engineers
- Cell biologists
- Hard-tissue histologists with specific training in biomechanics, bioimaging and cell/molecular biology methods
- Postdoctoral associates
In addition, we also run an Orthopaedics Resident Education program that meets weekly and includes:
- Case presentations
- Journal club
- Research presentations
Basic science trainees are welcome to attend along with the surgical residents.
