‚ÄčKirk McGilvray

Associate Director

Dr. McGilvray’s career goal is to make lasting and meaningful contributions in the fields of biomedical engineering and orthopaedic clinical science. Dr. McGilvray comprehensively examines the critically important relationship(s) between biomechanics and biology following disease, trauma, and surgical intervention utilizing clinically translatable comparative animal models. He believes it is vital to expand our basic science knowledge base and apply this information to develop and improve surgical techniques, implantable materials, and biomedical devices to aid in the treatment of complex orthopaedic conditions. One of Dr. McGilvray’s primary research areas is fracture healing and the belief that by increasing our understanding of the bony fracture healing cascade, we can have a significant clinical impact and potentially improve the quality of life for millions of people worldwide.
