Clinical Research

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is working to grow our clinical research programs and to collaborate with existing and developing programs throughout Duke University’s research community.

We are actively facilitating communication and interests among research and clinical faculty, research support staff, and clinical learners, and are launching a series of seminars in specialty areas of research to begin a process of developing groups within key areas of musculoskeletal research.

Clinical Research Unit

The CRU oversees and supports all clinical research projects undertaken by Duke Orthopaedics faculty, and helps investigators access and manage pre-and post-award funding from industry, foundation, and federal sources and develop strong research partnerships across disciplines.
