14:Live presents BU’s World Leading Orthopaedic Research Institute (ORI)

The first 14:Live of 2017 features BU’s Orthopaedic Research Institute (ORI) on 16 February.

Healthcare professionals will play a major role at some point in our lives.

BU’s ORI is working to make a real difference both locally and globally, in orthopaedic surgery, related diseases and treatments.

One particular area of expertise for ORI is osteoarthritis, which is a common form of joint disease. Clinicians in Dorset are frequently faced with the disease, owing to the large numbers of older people living in the region. This is an areas that ORI is currently working to make a real difference in.

They’re also experts in hip replacements and are currently looking at how blood flow can help post surgery recovery. As well as having a chance to hear about the life changing research and work from ORI, you’ll be able to test out the Laser Speckle Contrast Imager (LSCI) which is used to visualise blood flow and measure micro circulation just below the skin’s surface.

Join us on Floor 5, Student Centre at 14:00-15:00 to hear from ORI’s Project Manager, Shayan Bahadori and test out the LSCI.

All students and staff are welcome!
