Knee Research

OASIR was established in 2007 by a group of research enthusiasts in the North East of England. The research group is the result of a collaboration between the Orthopaedic Department in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead and researchers from the Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences in The School of Life Sciences at Northumbria University.

The group has weekly research seminars held on Friday lunch times at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital which are attended by Academics, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sport Scientists, Biomechanists, Surgical Trainees, Physicians, PhD Students, Junior Doctors, Physiotherapists and invited external speakers.

Our main interest is research around the hip, knee and ankle joint with special interest in the patello-femoral joint. Our aims are to perform cutting edge integrative orthopaedic research and technology development and to build a scientific team that can help in answering many clinical and non-clinical questions in the field of orthopaedics and sport science.

OASIR will endeavour to create ground breaking research papers which will answer clinically important questions and allow orthopaedic medicine to evolve and move forwards.

This information will be disseminated in leading Orthopaedic Research Journals. Working in collaboration with industrial partners, the effect of novel surgical methodology, techniques and equipment will be assessed by the research team.
