UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science


Research Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science

Advances in materials science have allowed us to enter a new phase in both our understanding and our use of implanted material which interact with the body in a dynamic way. 



Head: Dr Rui Loureiro

The Research Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science is located on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) site at the Stanmore campus, with geographically separate components across the site, including Centre for Materials Research, Centre for Tissue and Cell Research and the Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology and a newly revitalised partnership between RNOH Research & Innovation and UCL, which enables delivery of translational clinical research.
