Musculoskeletal Research

The Studies

Bone and tissue regrowth is a way for patients to experience complete recovery from previously debilitating conditions such as arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis and bone fractures. The Musculoskeletal Research Focus Area at NEOMED is focused on developing these re-growth processes to address the needs of our aging population.

The Statistics


Arthritis is responsible for nearly 1 million hospitalizations per year.


Nearly half of all Americans over the age of 65 suffer from arthritis.


One in two women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.

The Scientists

Researchers within this area have a multi-level understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy, function and pathology.
