Epigenetic influences on childhood bone accrual

Kassim Javaid & Abstract

Biographical Details

After completing medical training at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, I specialized in adult rheumatology at the Wessex Deanery. During that time, I completed a PhD examining the maternal determinants of intra-uterine bone growth as part of an ARC Clinical Fellowship at the University of Southampton. In my last year of clinical training, I was fortunate to be awarded an ARC travelling fellowship and worked with the OA group in UCSF to study the role of vitamin D and bone in lower limb OA, a fantastic opportunity. Since my return to the UK, I have been appointed as Senior Research Fellow in Metabolic Bone Disease/Honorary Consultant Rheumatologist at Oxford and further extended my research into the role of vitamin D status in musculoskeletal disease, improving outcomes after fragility fracture as well as continuing work looking into the bone phenotypes in osteoarthritis. Balancing clinical and teaching, my direction of research is evermore linking the basic science with the key clinical issues in OA and OP.
