The Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS) undertakes research in musculoskeletal and inflammatory conditions to deliver new treatments which improve people's lives. The department’s broad research areas cover: orthopaedic surgery, inflammation, immunology, rheumatology, medical statistics, epidemiology, and clinical trials. Researchers work alongside clinicians, substantially improving research capability, access to patients, and facilitating interaction between clinicians and scientists, which is essential for successful translational research.
