Head of Department Professor Andrew Carr has received the Arthur Steindler Award at this year’s Orthopaedic Research Association Annual Meeting.

The Arthur Steindler Award is given every other year to recognise an outstanding global contribution to orthopaedic research. The Award distinguishes "senior scientists, clinicians and educators who, throughout their professional lifetime, have made significant contributions - nationally and internationally - to the understanding of the musculoskeletal system and musculoskeletal diseases and injuries."

An orthopaedic surgeon, Professor Andrew Carr's research group focuses on improving evidence for the effectiveness of surgery generally and translating new surgical techniques and implants into the clinic.

Arthur Steiner MD was an orthopaedic surgeon, scientist and teacher, acknowledged by his peers as a pioneer in clinical and research advances in orthopaedic surgery and rehabilitation, having been instrumental in the passage of two Iowa laws that significantly altered the state's health care landscape. His research studies and medical textbooks were widely published and used by generations of medical students and residents in the US.
