Associate Professor Christine Rodda is a Paediatric Endocrinologist and a medical graduate and post graduate of the University of Melbourne.
Associate Professor Rodda is the Program Director of our Musculoskeletal Research in Children and Adolescents research program.
Currently the musculoskeletal development division is being developed by A/Professor Christine Rodda, Paediatric Endocrinologist with established expertise in growth, skeletal development and vitamin D metabolism and Dr Rachel Duckham, a senior research scientist with considerable depth and breadth of experience in RCT’s concerning children’s musculoskeletal health.
Together we very much look forward to applying Dr Duckham’s expertise to study specific paediatric clinical conditions.
Our specific areas of focus within this division comprise:
- Musculoskeletal development during childhood and adolescence in both health and disease
- Effects of Vitamin D deficiency on musculoskeletal development
- Genetic abnormalities of vitamin D metabolism
- Embryonic musculoskeletal development and imprinting
