The Clinical Research Cores serve as the cornerstone for human subject research conducted by the Indiana Center for Musculoskeletal Health. The Clinical Research Cores receives funding through an NIH NIAMS P30 grant. This team is working to better define musculoskeletal diseases that have common pathogenesis and clinical presentations.

Integrated Investigator Team
The Administrative Core facilitates cross-disciplinary clinical research by overseeing communications, pilot funding, and training programs for the Clinical Research Cores.
The Function, Imaging, and Tissue Resource Core offers standardized imaging outcomes for bone and muscle health assessments and a standardized data entry platform for physical function outcomes. The core also provides training in the performance and interpretation of these outcomes. Specimens and tissues related to musculoskeletal health are available through the Indiana Biobank.
MIM CoreThe Musculoskeletal Informatics Methodology Core contains the Computable Phenotype Research Core and the Clinical Trial Design and Omics Service Cores. This group connects investigators and facilitates multi-disciplinary research that leverages the use of novel technologies and resources to improve musculoskeletal health.
