Research at the MSRC has a primary focus in the areas of musculo-skeletal biology and biomechanics. Activities range from basic biomedical and engineering science research, to applied research, and clinical outcome assessment.

There are strong collaborative efforts between scientist and clinician, and many of the research projects stem directly from the practice of orthopedic medicine here at Upstate. Research is currently focused in the areas of orthopedic oncology, joint replacement, spine surgery, sports medicine, prosthetics, osteoporosis and bone biology, upper and lower extremity biomechanics, and fracture fixation.
