“Research is to see what everybody has seen and think what nobody has thought.” – Albert Szent-Györgyi
We believe knowledge expansion is the key to solving clinical problems and improving outcomes in orthopedic trauma care. The objective of our Research Program is to stimulate scientific studies in support of evidence-based research in surgical practice. Support of basic, pre-clinical, biomechanical, experimental, and translational research is the immediate aim of the program. The trends in development of trauma care technology are governed by an increase in the aging population, particularly in industrialized countries. The OTCF Research Program aims at mobilizing more resources to pre-clinical musculoskeletal research.
