About the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health

The University of Sydney and Sydney Local Health District have developed a collaborative research hub known as the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health. The Institute brings together musculoskeletal healthcare researchers from both academia and clinical practice and provides a platform to strengthen existing alliances whilst developing new local, national, and international collaborations. We operate according to the policy and procedures of both institutions, as applicable.


To achieve our vision of reducing the global burden of musculoskeletal disease, the Institute will promote translational research, foster the development of a highly skilled musculoskeletal research workforce, and contribute to developing sustainable, equitable, and cost-effective health care services.


We welcome doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers from around the world to work with us on a variety of exciting and groundbreaking projects.

Our Team

The Institute is comprised of more than 60 research and professional staff and students, and a growing group of Sydney Local Health District musculoskeletal clinicians.
