Our Transdiscilinary Team

CAMRIS is dedicated to the advancement of Appendicular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) through improved methods and tools that allow physicians and researchers to reliably assess and study patients and our understanding of diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

 

The Transdisciplinary Team

CAMRIS also partners with a Trandisciplinary Team from a diverse background to execute novel projects answering questions beyond our areas of expertise. We believe that the interdisciplinary nature of our research drives forward research goals while providing sound evidence-based motivation for future studies.
