Dr. Reider has expertise in the design and conduct of multi-center clinical trials and health services research in orthopaedic trauma and gerontology. Her work has focused primarily on 1) measuring outcomes following orthopaedic trauma; 2) evaluating the effects of aging, pharmacologic treatments, diet and exercise on skeletal fragility; and 3) evaluating new models of care for multi-morbid older adults. She is the Associate Director for the Coordinating Center of the Major Extremity Trauma and Rehabilitation Consortium (METRC), a network of over 30 hospitals conducting large prospective studies aimed to improve the clinical, functional, and quality of life outcomes following severe lower extremity injury.
