He also has a particular interest in the scientific quality and reporting of research publications. Sam has been awarded A$1.5million in research funding, and is an investigator on a series of clinical trials in orthopaedics, including a randomised registry trial recently funded by the NHMRC Medical Research Future Fund. 

Sam supervises both undergraduate (Independent Learning Project) students, as well as higher degree students.
