The goal of the program is to create a seamless partnership between Cornell Ithaca and HSS to enhance the cross-institutional application of engineering principles to musculoskeletal patient care.
Members are required to be engaged (or planning to become engaged) in a research project that spans both institutions, includes both a clinician and engineer, and can be discussed at any annual retreat.
