Musculoskeletal Biology Research
IU School of Medicine has a long tradition of outstanding research in musculoskeletal biology, as the school has been a leader in studies on osteoporosis and arthritis since the late 1960s. The musculoskeletal biology research community at the school’s Indianapolis campus is among the elite groups in the United States—and throughout the world. The Musculoskeletal Biology Research group includes more than 40 principal investigators, who are distributed among a number of departments within IU School of Medicine and also among other Indiana University schools, including Engineering and Technology, Science, Dentistry, and Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. The strength of the musculoskeletal group prompted IU School of Medicine to create the Indiana Center for Musculoskeletal Health, which brings together musculoskeletal-focused physicians, scientists and engineers for a team-based approach to musculoskeletal research.
