The London Spine Research Program research group is a collaborative team of experienced clinicians, engineers, scientists, and research assistants that strive to improve the care, surgical outcomes and ultimately the quality of life of patients with spinal disorders through translational basic science and clinical research.
Our clinical areas of focus include spinal trauma, spinal cord injury, degenerative spinal disorders, spinal deformity, and patient-orientated research.We conduct prospective and retrospective studies and we are involved in multiple clinician-initiated and industry-sponsored multi-centred clinical trials.We also collaborate with the Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry, and the Canadian Spine Outcomes and Research Network and conduct registry/large database studies.These projects are carried out at our clinical research office located at Victoria Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre.
Our basic science projects focus on spinal cord injury, biomarkers of intervertebral disc degeneration, spinal implant design, and the biomechanical testing of clinically relevant fracture models, innovative surgical techniques and spinal implants.Our basic science research is conducted in a biomedical engineering laboratory and a basic science trauma laboratory located at the Lawson Health Research Institute Victoria Research Laboratories in Victoria Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre.
