We have received such generous and strong support from so many donors over the years and we sincerely thank each and every one of you for making our work possible. We hope that you feel a part of all we have done, take pride in the results, and feel like our many discoveries and clinical applications are a strong return on investment.

Thanks to the exceptional generosity and support for our vision and mission from Bill & Nancy Thompson, The Thompson Laboratory for Regenerative Orthopaedics was born in 2016, which is a ~12,000 sqft world-class state-of-the-art facility dedicated to basic science, translational, and clinical research and housed in our full-service orthopaedic hospital – The Missouri Orthopaedic Institute – where scientists and surgeons work together in the same facility to solve real life orthopaedic problems in order to improve our patients’ lives. This is the first-and-only center of its kind – only at Mizzou.
