The Orthopaedic Research Labs at Rhode Island Hospital exist to expand the basic science of orthopaedics, improve understanding of orthopaedic diseases, and evaluate new methods of treatment for orthopaedic injuries and illnesses.
Research projects are generated from the interests of the research staff, orthopaedic physicians, and residents. Research topics range from collagen breakdown products to joint kinematics to new biomimetic surfaces for implants. Combined, the Orthopaedic Research Labs at Rhode Island Hospital possess a substantial amount in total grants and contracts.
