The Orthopaedic Biomedical Engineering Laboratory, located in the John T. Myers Center for Technological Research with Industry, is a collaboration between the Joint Replacement Surgeons of Indiana (JRSI) Research Foundation and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  This unique partnership between JRSI clinicians and Rose-Hulman engineers has created an unparalleled opportunity for undergraduate engineering students to directly participate in clinically-relevant orthopaedic research.

Working side by side with surgeons, faculty and engineers, students learn to design, execute and present scientific investigations in an effort to develop engineering solutions to clinical problems. Through this process, our research program provides high-quality evaluations of surgical techniques and orthopaedic devices for the purpose of improving the global standards of patient care while raising up the next generation of orthopaedic professionals.
