Brief Abstract of the Talk
: Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder in the world and in Western populations is one of the most frequent causes of pain, loss of function, and disability in adults. Despite its large disease burden, there are no proven preventative strategies as its aetiology is poorly understood. This talk will give an overview of my PhD thesis which supports a role for bone changes in the early stages of the disease and provides evidence for targeted bone treatments to both prevent and treat osteoarthritis.
