The Hand and Upper Limb Centre at St. Joseph's Health Centre has a comprehensive research program extending from bench-top experiments to clinical outcome studies. The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is focused on a wide range of studies, including joint kinematics, fracture and implant fixation, implant development, and tendon biomechanics.

The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is directed by Dr. James Johnson, a mechanical engineer, and orthopaedic surgeons Dr. Graham King and Dr. David Chess. We presently have six graduate students and numerous undergraduate students working in association with orthopaedic fellows and residents, on a wide range of biomechanical studies.

This web site is designed to introduce you to our research program, while offering prospective graduate students or residents the opportunity to acquire pertinent information. During your tour of this site, please feel free to access recruitment info for more details.
