The BADER Consortium is multi-institutional endeavor that works in concert and partnership with medical treatment facilities to conduct innovative, high-impact, clinically relevant research that further strengthens evidence-based orthopaedic rehabilitation care.

One of the ways this happens is through an omnibus Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, or CRADA, an innovative strategy that creates a standard operating procedure addressing intellectual property, publications, data sharing, subject inventions and licensing among all partners.

This model CRADA is a unique mechanism designed to cover all activities associated with a dynamic, nationwide clinical research consortium. It replaces the past practice of negotiating CRADA for each research-related activity.

Thanks to the streamlined natured of the omnibus CRADA, the BADER Consortium has successfully onboarded nine entities.
