The Australian and New Zealand Orthopaedic Research Society (ANZORS) is a dynamic society that attracts researchers and clinicians in the field of Orthopaedics from Australia and New Zealand. We now have over 150 members from around the region, and continue to grow every year. Since its inception, ANZORS encourages students and other young investigators in the field to present their work at a national forum at our annual scientific meeting.

Strong support from industry allows us to provide numerous travel grants to young investigators to attend the annual meeting. We would encourage all those in the field of orthopaedic research to attend our annual scientific meeting, as we are sure you will find it an enjoyable and rewarding experience.


To promote, support, develop and encourage research in musculoskeletal disorders, diseases and injuries and in their management. To provide a forum for the sharing and dissemination of knowledge in these fields.


ANZORS represents a stream of basic and applied scientists, orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists and industry scientists who have passion, dynamics and motivation to pursue orthopaedic research. The orthopaedic research community in Australia and New Zealand is rapidly expanding. Several areas, including molecular biology research, therapeutic lineage specific cell therapy, orthopaedic bioengineering and prothesis design and assessment are becoming the focus of research by our members. Thus, communication between groups for encouragement of interdisciplinary collaboration should be the foremost goal for ANZORS.
