Orthopaedic Research Laboratories at Mount Sinai


Welcome to the web page of the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories (ORL) at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The ORL promotes strong ties between the basic science and clinical faculty with a highly collaborative atmosphere. Dedicated to understanding conditions spanning the field of Orthopaedics, the ORL works together to investigate joint mechanics, spine degeneration and musculoskeletal injury. Research projects range from basic science studies exploring mechanisms of  intervertebral disc disease and tendon tears to new paradigms for repair in translational projects evaluating specific treatments. The ORL contains multidisciplinary faculty, experienced staff, post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students, and visiting scholars. Trainees gain experience in medical, bioscience, and bioengineering research topics.
