At the Rizzoli Institute, current research is programmed according to a multiannual plan that is developed following four main lines of research:
- Regenerative and reparative medicine;
- Innovative and prosthetic surgery;
- Inflammatory, infectious, degenerative and genetic diseases.
The current lines of research have been reconfirmed for the three-year period 2018-2020. Two supervisors have been identified, as clinical and research representatives, with a 3-year period assignment.
The lines include several research projects, entrusted to the responsibility of a dedicated scientific supervisor.
Current research is funded by the Ministry of Health, with resources distributed proportionally to the scientific production of every Scientific Research Hospitals - IRCCSs (here the 2020 funding data - page in Italian).
