and Musculoskeletal Diseases Center and the Boston University Multidisciplinary Research Center. An expert on the epidemiology and
pathophysiology of osteoarthritis, Dr. Felson has led numerous large cohort studies in osteoarthritis, with the goal of elucidating risk factors for the disease, as well as its natural history.


Caley M. Orr, PhD, Department of Anatomy | Midwestern University |
Downers Grove, Illinois

Dr. Orr is a paleoanthropologist and functional anatomist and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anatomy at Midwestern University’s
Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. His primary research interests are focused on understanding the evolutionary history of the human postcranial skeleton (especially the hands and feet) and what this tells us about the intertwined origins of our bipedal locomotion, enhanced manipulative capabilities, and tool use. Much of this work is conducted using a variety of methods in biomedical imaging and morphometrics to study the comparative anatomy of humans, other extant primates, and early fossil human ancestors.
