To deliver world leading interdisciplinary translational musculoskeletal research by effective interaction between Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Technology and Clinical Medicine.
We are interested in many areas of musculoskeletal research, with an emphasis on translation. This type of research, sometimes called bench to bedside, links fundamental discovery to patient care.
The nature of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints muscles and tendons) and range of possible research, both in health and disease, require many different scientific disciplines to work together. Cambridge Musculoskeletal Sciences is a network facilitating this interaction across several scientific interfaces – Physical and Biological Sciences, Technology and Clinical Medicine.
