Our faculty and staff are working on innovative research developing new materials, improving surgical techniques and designing medical devices. Our clinical research work primarily involves the study of patients who experience orthopaedic injuries and the treatments that help these patients heal from their injuries. Our basic research focuses on biomechanics, biomaterials, and translational research.
