Orthopaedic Research UK is a charitable organisation which funds high-quality research into orthopaedic science.
They are an independent body dedicated to advancing orthopaedic knowledge, not just by funding and publicising research – but also by organising training and events which promote collaboration between orthopaedic surgeons, scientists and engineers.
They were established in 1989 by the orthopaedic surgeon Mr Ronald Furlong FRCS. Until 2011, they were known as the Furlong Research Charitable Foundation.
Today they are one of the most significant funders of orthopaedic research in the UK, working alongside many of the UK’s leading academic institutions.
