Musculoskeletal

Musculoskeletal diseases are identified as the second greatest cause of disability throughout the world and include conditions such as osteoporosis, sarcopenia and arthritis. Researchers are part of cross-functional and collaborative teams to study conditions related to disorders of the bone, muscle and joint for improvement in disease prevention and evidence-based care.
