About the Division
The Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery seeks to deliver excellence in research, teaching and training as it relates to the surgery of bones, joints and other structures relevant to movement.
The Division, lead by Prof Andrew McCaskie, forms part of the Department of Surgery, lead by Prof Andrew Bradley. We aim to improve understanding of bone and joint problems and so develop treatments to relieve pain and restore function.
We adopt a translational approach, meaning that we seek advances in fundamental musculoskeletal sciences that apply to patient care in the operating theatre and clinic.
A partnership led by the Medical Research Council (MRC) has awarded the University of Cambridge £25 million to provide cutting-edge equipment and infrastructure for its clinical research. MRC funding will enable the creation of the Cambridge Single Cell Analysis Clinical Core Facility, a new shared core facility for single cell analysis that will serve all major molecular medicine programmes in Cambridge: cancer, neurosciences, immunity and inflammation, infectious diseases, stem cell and regenerative medicine, metabolic medicine and experimental therapeutics.
