What is CORe?
Located in the Clinical Sciences Building, Collaborative Orthopaedic Research (CORe) is an interdisciplinary group from the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, and Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta. CORe's focus is on improving the recovery of patients with bone, joint and muscle conditions and injuries.
By coming together, CORe researchers and clinicians can easily transfer new research findings into clinical practice and evaluate the clinical impact of new treatments on patients, health care providers and the health care system. Clinicians and researchers can also work together to address important knowledge gaps in each of the areas.
CORe is made up of six groups consisting of clinicians (surgeons, rehabilitation medicine professionals and physicians) and researchers.
