Research topic

The research aims determine whether clinical and genetic risk factors are associated with bone injury and their influences.  Specifically:

  • The influences of both clinical and genetic risk factors to bone injury
  • Gender related differences to bone and musculoskeletal injury
  • Develop nutritional strategies that minimise and treat fractures and musculoskeletal injuries
