Research at the IBJR

The key to our performance is to ensure that research, education, clinician involvement and consumers (patients) are embedded at all levels of IBJR’s structure. Below is our structure that encompasses these elements. The structure also includes eight disease related streams across the four elements of clinical research, clinical expertise, education and basic science. To ensure continuity from lab to clinic to practice, each stream has a clinical lead, a research lead and a consumer.
