Visitors will have the opportunity to see behind the scenes in our research laboratories and learn about the future directions of musculoskeletal research. A series of short talks will bring to life historical and contemporary aspects of medical research.

Professor Andrew Carr, Head of Department and Director of the Botnar Research Centre will provide insights into the history of Orthopaedics at Oxford. There will also be a photo exhibition and hands-on activities led by our team of researchers, bringing to life research from the Centre.

Organised by the Oxford Preservation Trust, Oxford Open Doors celebrates fantastic contemporary and historic buildings across Oxford. Many otherwise closed venues open their doors making it a wonderful opportunity to learn, feel and discover in some truly remarkable places.
