Musculoskeletal Collaboration Center

Welcome to the website of the Musculoskeletal Collaboration Center (MC2), a research-intensive working group between the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Our group is dedicated to advancing musculoskeletal knowledge through innovative research, education, and clinical practice.

At VCU, we recognize the importance of collaboration between different disciplines to achieve breakthroughs in medical research and practice. MC2 is a prime example of this philosophy in action. By combining the expertise of orthopaedic surgeons with that of biomedical engineers and scientists, we are able to develop and implement new technologies and techniques that can significantly improve human health and help communities thrive.

Our working group is comprised of a diverse team of professionals, including orthopaedic surgeons, biomedical engineers, researchers, and educators. Our members are leaders in their respective fields, and have a shared passion for advancing the science and practice of orthopedic surgery.

Through our research, we aim to develop new technologies and techniques that can improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. Our education initiatives seek to train the next generation of surgeons, scientists, and engineers, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their careers.

We also collaborate closely with industry partners to bring our innovations to the wider medical community. Our goal is to ensure that our research and practice have a positive impact on patients not just in Virginia, but around the world.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about collaborative, our research, and our educational initiatives. If you have any questions or would like to get involved with our working group, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Thank you for your interest in our work, and we look forward to collaborating with you!
