We are one of the largest joint replacement centres in the UK. Headed by Professor Ashley Blom, our orthopaedic research team includes experts in orthopaedic surgery, long-term pain, physiotherapy, epidemiology, statistics, health economics, psychology, systematic review, qualitative methods, public and patient involvement  and outcome measurement.

Our clinical and health services research facilities are set alongside a suite of five modern laboratories which support routine mammalian cell culture, biochemistry, molecular biology and stromal cell work to facilitate translational research.
