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.
