Orthopaedic & Trauma Medicine MScR

Course Description

Research profile

We offer a comprehensive research programme suitable for PhDs and MScs covering a diverse range of musculoskeletal disorders.

There are ongoing projects in the following areas:

musculoskeletal tissue engineering, stem cells and regenerative medicine
orthopaedic engineering and modelling of the musculoskeletal system
osteoporosis and fracture repair
clinical outcome studies

Training and support

Students are assigned to the relevant research group. Each student's progress is monitored by a thesis committee convened from members within these groups. Students participate in a monthly graduate seminar programme, presenting their analysis of original research. All students are encouraged to present their findings at national and international conferences and to publish their findings in international journals, in advance of submission of their PhD theses for examination.


The orthopaedic engineering unit and the musculoskeletal research unit along with the microCT facilities are based within the Chancellor's Building. Facilities for collaborative projects are based in the centre for regenerative medicine and the centre for integrative physiology. The outcome performance assessment facilities are based within the clinical department in the Royal Infirmary.
