Musculoskeletal Research Center Cores

Overview of Services

Washington University has a long record of excellence in musculoskeletal research and clinical care.  The MRC Research Base has 75 members who have over 49 million dollars of annual research support (direct costs). The goals of the Center are to enhance the productivity of established musculoskeletal scientists, to support young investigators in our field and to facilitate collaboration between established skeletal scientists and those bringing non-traditional questions and strategies to our discipline. The major programmatic focus of the MRC will be to support and expedite the creation and analysis of animal models of relevance to musculoskeletal biology and disease. Our basic and translational research efforts will be directed toward an understanding of musculoskeletal biology at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels with the goal that such studies will directly impact our understanding of the pathophysiology of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, muscular dystrophy, osteochondrodysplasias as well as regeneration of bone, cartilage, tendon and muscle.
