The Center for Orthopaedic Research (COR) was established to create an environment where research, education and collaboration integrate to foster novel ideas in basic science that can translate to the clinical arena and ultimately impact patient care. Osteoarthritis affects nearly 27 million Americans, chemoresistant osteosarcoma cancers represent 15 % of all pediatric cancers and secondary bone cancers can arise from breast, prostate, lung, kidney and thyroid cancers.  The COR team is taking on these musculoskeletal conditions at the molecular level. Current research projects are focused on biomedical engineering of bone scaffolding, biomolecular signaling of inflammatory osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and chemoresistant osteosarcoma cancers, as well as biomechanical optimization of surgical techniques for improved patient outcomes.

Our research efforts have been validated and supported in part by several prestigious awards, including two National Institutes of Health R01 grants and Department of Defense funding.

Your gift will aid our team of physicians, researchers and students as they persevere in research areas that are relevant to orthopaedics, dentistry, biomechanical engineering, biomolecular engineering and cancer research. Together we can seek the answers to improving the health and quality of life for children and adults faced with cancer and musculoskeletal diseases.

We thank you for your generous support.
