Dr. Ata Kiapour is an Assistant Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School, Principal Investigator at the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory, and the Director of the Musculoskeletal Informatics Group (MIG) in Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. He has a diverse training and have research and product development experience in both academia and industry. He holds BS and MS degrees in Material Science and Engineering (Iran University of Science & Technology 2004 and 2008), PhD in Biomedical Engineering (University of Toledo, OH), and Master of Medical Sciences in Clinical and Translational Investigation (HMS 2016). He has also conducted postdoctoral fellowship in Orthopedic Surgery (Boston Children’s Hospital 2013-2015).

Dr. Kiapour’s research is focused on developing new methods for analyzing clinical data (e.g. imaging) to better understand the etiology and mechanisms of musculoskeletal diseases and to develop new tools for injury prediction and to facilitate clinical decision-making (e.g. treatment choice). His approaches have been applied in several domains, including studying joint morphogenesis and its implications in injury risk and treatment outcomes, development of new imaging biomarkers to track tissue healing and response to treatment, and development of simulation tools for surgical planning. Dr. Kiapour founded the Musculoskeletal Informatics Group (MIG) in 2021.

Susan Keays, PhD
Physiotherapist and Clinical Researcher
Adjunct Associate Professor

The University of the Sunshine Coast
Queensland, Australia

Sue trained as a physiotherapist at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg under Professor Joan Walker, winning the award for the best final year thesis.  Her early physio years were spent at Baragawanth Hospital (now the Chris Hani Hospital) and in hospitals in London and Edinburgh, including Princess Margaret Rose Orthopaedic Hospital. She completed a Hons degree in Psychology during her four year/four baby break from physio. This has provided helpful insights in clinical work. She also has a BA in History of Art and History of Music.

Since arriving in Australia in 1982, Sue has focussed on orthopaedic physiotherapy, especially in relation to the knee.  She works in private practice as a clinician and clinical researcher and has students in her clinic annually. She was awarded her PhD entitled ‘Deficits following Anterior Ligament Injury including the effects of Surgery, Physiotherapy and the Development of Osteoarthritis’ from the University of Queensland in 2005. Sue has served on regional committees of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Sports Medicine Australia over time.  She has received several awards following presentations at numerous conferences and has presented at every World Physiotherapy Congress since 1995, where her final year physio class continue to celebrate together, coming from all corners of the world! Sue’s special interest is in the role of physiotherapy in optimising outcomes in the treatment of ACL injuries, patellofemoral pain and osteoarthritis, as well as in the aetiology of these conditions. She is continuing a long-term follow-up of her PhD ACL cohort and is very grateful to her patients for their ongoing involvement and to the orthopaedic surgeons, particularly her husband, who support her interest. Sue feels very privileged to be active in this dynamic field of sports medicine. When not treating patients, researching, or reviewing, she enjoys spending time with her family, cycling, playing golf and climbing mountains of any type… including Kilimanjaro!
