Skeletal reconstructive surgery utilizing bone grafts and metal prostheses has benefited from many advances in bioengineering. These advances, however, have often occurred without initial clinical input in their development. Further advancements in skeletal reconstruction will require interdisciplinary interaction of diverse bioengineering disciplines such that clinically oriented problems will help guide bioengineering developments. These bioengineering disciplines would include medical imaging, surgery simulation, computational design, material fabrication, nanotechnology, prosthesis design and skeletal tissue engineering. We propose a Bioengineering Research Partnership with the theme of Systems Integration for Skeletal Engineering (SISE), which will bring together these diverse engineering disciplines directed at clinically oriented problems in skeletal reconstruction. These clinical problems will emanate from our Clinical Advisory Panel (CAP), composed of craniofacial and total joint reconstructive surgeons. The CAP will interact with an interdisciplinary group of engineers and biologists to assure maximal translation of knowledge to surgeon's needs and patient care. The SISE will consist of clinical, engineering, and biology cores.
