Mohit Bhandari , professor, orthopaedic surgery, has been promoted to a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Evidence-Based Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Bhandari will be building on a stellar research program that began with his Tier 2 CRC in Musculoskeletal Trauma and Surgical Outcomes, continuing to improve the lives of persons with musculoskeletal trauma. Using multinational large randomized trials and large observational cohort studies, Bhandari’s research will focus on: road traffic and associated high energy trauma; intentional injuries in women (violence against women, intimate partner violence); and osteoporotic and low energy trauma in the elderly.
Tier 1 Chairs, tenable for seven years and renewable, are for outstanding researchers acknowledged by their peers as world leaders in their fields. For each Tier 1 Chair, the university receives $200,000 annually for seven years.
