    Theodore Miclau III, MD is Professor and Vice Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, and the Director of the University of California/San Francisco General Hospital Orthopaedic Trauma Institute. Dr. Miclau serves on many local and national committees, and editorial and grant-review panels. He is Past-President of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA), and Past-President of the International Combined Orthopaedic Research Societies. He is currently the Steering Committee Chair of the International Orthopaedic Trauma Association, Committee Chair of the Osteosynthesis and Trauma Care Foundation’s Research Committee, and Chair of the Clinical Science Advisory Committee for the AO Foundation. He organizes the Consortium of Orthopaedic Academic Traumatologists (COACT), which has the goal of enhancing the collaborative efforts of North American centers that engage in education and research in low and low-middle income countries, and the Asociación de Ciruganos Traumatólogos en las Americas (ACTUAR), which is a growing surgeon network dedicated to promoting research in Latin America. He is the course chair for the Annual San Francisco International Orthopaedic Trauma conference now in its 18th year and other conferences nationally and internationally. His research focuses on clinical studies of musculoskeletal injury care and basic research of bone repair and is supported by extramural grants from the US Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health. He has published over 225 peer-reviewed research papers and 20 book chapters. He has teamed with a variety of organizations to develop research and clinical courses throughout the United States, Europe, and Latin America, and is an Honorary Member of multiple national orthopaedic societies, including the Federación Mexicana de Colegios De Ortopedia y Traumatologia (FEMECOT), Cuban Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SCOT), Sociedad Colombiana de Cirugia Ortopedico y Traumatologia (SCCOT), and the Argentina Association of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (AAOT). He has recently been recognized with the Alfred R. Shands Award from the ORS, Transformative Contribution Award from the ICORS, and the Honorary Award from the Osteosynthesis and Trauma Care Foundation.
