Research is where it begins. Without it, there would be no innovation, no improved care and treatments for patients or hope for patients that suffer from diseases that we could one day prevent.

As one of the core values of the ORS, Advocacy has always been extremely important to the society. Lack of funding is a constant threat to individual researchers and research programs. To help our members advocate on their own behalf, the ORS is dedicated to providing tools and resources to help scientists highlight the importance of musculoskeletal research.
