My Work

We are currently working with several groups including cell biology (REMEDI, Prof. T. O’Brien), mechanical and tissue engineering (Prof. L. McNamara), Orthopaedic Surgery (Prof. John mcCabe), Centre for Pain Research (Prof. B. McGuire), Health Economics (Dr. Edel Doherty) and Rheumatology (Prof. John Carey), and the Clinical Research Facility (Prof. Martin O’Donnell) on 4 project areas:

1) Epidemiology and outcome of musculoskeletal diseases in Ireland.
2) Novel markers of osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases in rheumatic diseases.
3) Cellular, tissue and clinical comparisons of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and diabetes.
4) Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses of clinically relevant medical interventions

2) Large database cleaning, merging, analysis and validation
3) Observational studies of musculoskeletal diseases
4) Multidisciplinary translational research between clinical, imaging and engineering departments of bone and other tissues.
5) Use of electronic health information to improve, accelerate and optimise care of patients with musculoskeletal diseases.
