Located at UCalgary’s Cumming School of Medicine, the new Mobility and Joint Health Centre (MoJo) opened in September.

The research facility will focus on bone and joint disorders, which are among the most common chronic conditions affecting Canadians and are the leading cause of disabilities, worldwide.

Evidence suggests that early diagnosis and intervention can positively influence the long-term outcome of these chronic diseases.

The new facility features state-of-the-art imaging, movement assessment and diagnostic equipment that will be used by researchers to assess bone and joint health.

Established with support by a $4.7-million grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), a $4.7-million grant from the Province of Alberta, industry partners and private donors, MoJo will be a hub for physicians, basic scientists, biomedical engineers, patients and the Alberta health system.
