I am a research scientist located in Chemical Pathology, SA Pathology and my major focus is characterising dietary and hormonal factors that influence bone structure and strength particularly as related to osteoporosis. In particular, I have recently indentified novel roles for vitamin D on the regulation of bone cell proliferation and maturation as well as resorptive activity.I am currently studying animal models of vitamin D depletion, knockouts and transgenics to study vitamin D metabolism and activity at the bone cell level. My work integrates biochemical, hormonal, and dietary interactions with quantification of skeletal structure, strength and bone cell activities including molecular signalling. My current studies quantifying the effects of direct and indirect activities of vitamin D on bone are focussed on providing scientific evidence for how vitamin D supplementation reduces the incidence of hip fracture in the elderly.
