The department has collaborated with orthopaedic surgeons from Edinburgh University and Edinburgh Royal Infirmary  to develop an animal model of scoliosis that will enable novel orthopaedic implants to be evaluated. This collaboration has resulted in grant funding by the Medical Research Council. Currently we are using the model to evaluate a prototype spinal implant and associated surgical instrumentation that we have developed in collaboration with our Edinburgh colleagues.
