Neuromusculoskeletal disorders constitute some of the most impactful challenges for the aged. The disease burden of these disorders, including osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, low-back pain, muscular defects such as sarcopenia and volumetric muscle loss, and tendon, vascular, and peripheral nerve injuries, and others, is well recognized, as they represent the primary cause of physical disability and severely compromise mobility, functionality, and quality of life.
Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine (CNRM) is a multi-disciplinary, international consortium devoted to the application of convergent principles and technologies of biomedical science and engineering to restore structure and function to neuromusculoskeletal tissues and organs injured, diseased and degenerated due to aging, for the maintenance of mobility and enhancement of quality of life through biomedical research and development.
The Center will support five research programmes:
