Institute for Musculoskeletal Health Research

The Institute for Musculoskeletal Health is a world-class innovative research collaboration between Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney.

The Institute brings together musculoskeletal healthcare researchers and clinicians who have direct contact with patients in the health system.

Poor musculoskeletal health is the leading cause of disability globally and this burden will increase in coming decades with an ageing population. An intensified research effort is needed where consumers are actively involved and the research delivers real world impact.

In bringing together frontline clinicians, policy makers, researchers and consumers to design and conduct high quality, patient-centred research, the Institute positively impacts practice, health systems and health policy.

The Institute will promote translational research, foster the development of a highly-skilled musculoskeletal research workforce, and contribute to developing sustainable, equitable and cost-effective health care services.
