Research Labs

Biomaterials Laboratory

The Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center’s Biomaterials Lab is located on the Marquette University Campus in the Physics Building. The laboratory contains tissue processing equipment as well as a darkroom. Orthopaedic residents and medical students can become involved in implant studies and basic research that will help them evaluate new products throughout their careers. Learn More


Biomechanics Laboratory

The Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center’s Biomechanics Lab is located at Marquette University in Cramer Hall. This lab is designed and maintained to support basic science and applied research projects in orthopaedic biomechanics. Research methods often encompass in-vitro experiments with human or animal cadaveric specimens and the use of computer modeling and analysis. Learn More


Cell Biology Laboratory

The Orthopaedic Cell Biology Laboratory is located on the 4th floor of the Medical Education Building. The lab investigates the interactions between bone cells and orthopaedic implants providing the residents a unique environment for collaboration between basic science and orthopaedic surgeons.

Musculoskeletal Functional Assessment Center: Pediatric Orthopaedic Research Lab

The Musculoskeletal Functional Assessment Center is located in the Orthopaedic Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. This research lab supports basic science and clinically related studies involving orthopaedic conditions, focusing primarily on pediatric spinal deformities. The center provides research opportunities for medical students, biomedical engineering students, orthopaedic residents, and physicians. Learn More


Center for Motion Analysis at the Medical College of Wisconsin

The Center for Motion Analysis (CMA) is located at Children’s Hospital Greenway Clinic. The center is designed to support a broad scope of both clinical and research oriented projects for the orthopaedic residents and faculty. Research applications include studies of surgical intervention, orthotic and prosthetic treatment, and therapy upon upper and lower extremity motion and control. Learn More


Sports Medicine Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory

The Sports Medicine Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory is located within the Froedtert and Medical College Sports Medicine Center. This lab uses an eight-camera, digital, real-time system to capture and analyze an athlete’s motion (a batters swinging, a golfer’s swing, a pitcher’s delivery, a soccer player’s kick or a ballerina’s twirl) to view the mechanics, show inefficiencies, and provide force data to maximize performance.
