AOSpine Asia Pacific
Research Committee 2017

AOSpine Research emphasizes on clinical research, focusing on research that matters to the AOSpine members and to the patients. It is our endeavor to make AOSpine the premier “Knowledge Creator” in the field of spine surgery. Over the past years, AOSAP granted a significant amount of research funding in the regions. In 2018, new research activities will be developed.

The Research Committee Meeting was held on March 17, 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand.

A Look Back at 2017 - Chairperson of AOSAP Research
Up till 2017, AOSpine Research Committee (Asia Pacific) has provided significant funding for over 155 national research projects. These projects were conducted in various countries within the Asia Pacific regions such as Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan etc. Despite national projects, AOSpine Research Committee also supported projects which contain collaborations between multi-centers. In late 2017, the research committee has completed two blinded evaluations and eventually, three regional research projects were awarded the research grant for starting this 2-year project.

The committee will keep fulfilling the objective of AOSpine Research which is to become the leading global academic society in spine care. Our emphasis is on clinical research, focusing on research that matters to the AOSpine members and to the patients. I would like to highlight two research activities will be rolled out in 2018 at the first time for Asia Pacific professionals: Online research education will be launched by Quarter 2; Research modules will be taught at some of the national educational events.

Lastly, I take this chance to thank our research committee for their invaluable commitment!
