Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall opened Phase II of the Institute of Musculoskeletal Sciences, Botnar Research Centre.

Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall, came to the Botnar Research Centre on 9 May to officially open the Phase II building of the Institute of Musculoskeletal Sciences. She is a patron of the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre Charity, which supports the hospital where the Institute is based, and also opened the Phase I building in 2003.

Professor Andrew Carr, departmental head of NDORMS, noted that: "The Botnar Research Centre brings the University's bone, joint and arthritis research together in a purpose-built facility on the site of the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. This allows truly multidisciplinary science right where patients are, offering a partnership between University research and teaching and the work that goes on in NHS clinical practice at the hospital, with many patients participating in research projects and clinical studies."

Further information and pictures from the visit can be found on the University website.
