To advance the science and knowledge in the broad range of musculoskeletal conditions, UT Southwestern has launched a Musculoskeletal and Sports Research Program (MSRP).
One in 2 adults in the U.S. would be affected by a musculoskeletal condition or injury that hinders their ability to move without pain, according to a 2016 report from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Understanding these conditions and developing new treatments requires expertise from multiple disciplines.
The MSRP will foster collaborations among various departments and centers - including Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Internal Medicine, the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine, and the Charles and Jane Pak Center for Mineral Metabolism and Clinical Research.

Nitin Jain, M.D., M.S.P.H., Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Surgery, serves as program director. Under Dr. Jain’s leadership, the MSRP will build new synergies among our investigators, engage trainees as they advance in their careers, and attract additional premier researchers and physician-scientists to our institution. These efforts will enable outstanding basic, translational, and clinical research that will ultimately improve patient care.
