Specialized Centers of Research (SCOR) Grants

In 1987, the National Institue of Arhritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) established "Specialized Centers of Research" (SCORs) in osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease. A SCOR, envisioned to be a national resource associated with a major medical center, is dedicated to translating basic research into clinical applications. In 1987, under the leadership of the Rush Medical College Department of Biochemistry chairman, Klaus E. Kuettner, PhD, a multidisciplinary team of Rush investigators from the departments of Biochemistry, Orthopedic Surgery, Rheumatology and Anatomy, was awarded one of the three initial SCOR grants in osteoarthritis.
