OrthoSpineNews reports the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF), the leading private organization funding orthopaedic research across all subspecialties, announced Kyle W. Morse, MD, resident at HSS, earned the title of Grand Champion in OREF’s second National Resident Research Symposium. Dr. Morse presented his research on vertebral stem cells and spinal fusion.

“Our research can have tremendous impact on patient care.
