About us

Advancing our understanding of bone and joint disorders

The Institute of Bone and Joint Research (IBJR) was established in 1999 to provide an Institute devoted to advancing our understanding of the disorders and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, their diagnosis and treatments. The IBJR is an institute without walls.

The research laboratories at the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) campus are housed in the state-of-the-art Kolling Building, and we have clinical and other research units on the RNSH campus and other teaching hospitals at the University of Sydney.

We are a part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney. Explore more research within our faculty.
