Dr. Thomas R. Hickernell, the Translational Research in Orthopaedics (TRIO) fellow of the Center for Orthopaedic Research (COR) has received a Resident Research Project Grant from the OREF for his proposal “Investigation of the mechanism of action and a novel therapeutic application of a caspase 1 inhibitor in the setting of inflammatory osteolysis.”  The study’s long range goal is to preserve and enhance bone quality in diverse conditions that lead to pathologic inflammatory osteolysis.

Mentor, Dr. Francis Y. Lee, Director of COR and Vice-Chair for Research, oversees the TRIO program, a six year research residency track with year one dedicated to research. The research year includes guidance on the fundamentals of grant proposal development and grant application processes. In addition to his role as mentor to residents, post-doctoral research fellows and students, Dr. Lee is an active proponent for the AAOS/OREF/ORS Clinician Scholar Development Programs sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Orthopaedic Research & Education Foundation and the Orthopaedic Research Society.
