The mission of the AOA Research Foundation is to promote and support research into musculo-skeletal disorders. The Foundation values excellence, integrity and professionalism in the acquisition of knowledge through ethical research.
The Australian Orthopaedic Association Research Fund was established in 1970 by the Australian Orthopaedic Association. It was formally incorporated as an approved Research Insitute in 1998 and re-named the AOA Research Foundation Limited. Legal and financial separation from the AOA was finalised in 2000 and set out in deed of co-operation.
The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors with a Research Advisory Committee which makes recommendations to the Board concerning the distribution of research funding. The Foundation continues to successfully raise, manage and distribute funds to support research into musculo-skeletal disorders. Over the last decade, the Foundation has given over $600,000 to support 70 research projects.
