The group aims to improve musculoskeletal health in patients, the frail elderly and individuals subject to tissue injury. The group has current research strengths in biochemical investigation of metabolic bone disease and calcium disorders, epidemiology of connective tissue disease, fracture treatment and outcome, muscle metabolism in ageing, molecular investigation of cellular processes in bone disorders and autophagy, tendon and cartilage biology.

Our key areas of research include:

  • Metabolic bone disease
  • Calcium disorders
  • Epidemiology of connective tissue disease
  • Fracture treatment outcome
  • Bone tumours
