One of the Department’s major interests is in musculoskeletal research. The creation of the Center for Musculoskeletal Research in 2000 formalized a 25-year history of multidisciplinary, comprehensive research for bettering musculoskeletal health for the patients of today and tomorrow. As one of the NIH’s number one funded orthopaedics department, the Center brings together clinicians, scientists, and clinician-scientists and offers opportunities for basic, translational, and clinical research.
