There are ongoing projects in the following areas:
Students are assigned to the relevant research group. Each student's progress is monitored by a thesis committee convened from members within these groups. Students participate in a monthly graduate seminar programme, presenting their analysis of original research. All students are encouraged to present their findings at national and international conferences and to publish their findings in international journals, in advance of submission of their PhD theses for examination.
The orthopaedic engineering unit and the musculoskeletal research unit along with the microCT facilities are based within the Chancellor's Building. Facilities for collaborative projects are based in the centre for regenerative medicine and the centre for integrative physiology. The outcome performance assessment facilities are based within the clinical department in the Royal Infirmary.
