The Orthopaedic Research Program supports clinical, epidemiological, and outcomes research in orthopaedics and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Funded studies of orthopaedic devices and joint replacement involve preclinical testing and development of orthopaedic devices/implants, human subject implant wear, and osteolysis. Finally, sports medicine and fitness is another area of focus for the program.
