Extract

Basic, translational, and clinical research in orthopaedics continues to be an important part of the mission of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). The AAOS Research Committee recently released a report entitled "Future Directions in Musculoskeletal Research." This report (available online at www.aaos.org/wordhtml/research/synthesis/panel_future_directions.pdf) is a detailed document that summarizes the findings of panels of experts in seventeen areas of musculoskeletal care. Each panel developed a report that described the scope of research, including its importance to public health as well as its clinical importance, recent advances in the field, and future directions for research. The research areas that were identified in the seventeen panel reports were sorted into twenty common themes ("Musculoskeletal Research Focus Areas"). The most common research themes identified by the panels were tissue-engineering, cell biology, genetics research (including biomarkers and gene therapy), biomechanics and biophysics, and outcomes research (including assessment tools and clinical trials). This summary will help to identify fruitful research topics for orthopaedic clinicians and scientists as well as students and scientists in training and also will identify areas in need of research support from funding agencies.
