Who we are & what we do
The Queensland Orthopaedic Research Foundation Institute (known as QORF) is a not-for-profit and registered charitable (Health Promotion Charity) organisation committed to improving lives by supporting innovative orthopaedic research in Queensland. QORF is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and is dedicated to the improvement of musculoskeletal outcomes in Queensland.
With the ability to provide a wide degree of research support to the professional orthopaedic community in Queensland, QORF aims to support projects both large and small. Focusing on supporting junior doctors and training registrars, QORF aims to help them build a strong foundation for their research careers.
In addition to funding, QORF aims to offer new investigators opportunities to establish mentor relationships with well-respected orthopaedic surgeons and access to a database of experienced research professionals who share our passion and vision for Queensland based orthopaedic research.
