Musculoskeletal diseases are a rapidly growing cause of disability, chronic pain, and reduced quality of life in an ageing population. My research aims to gain novel insights into these diseases, osteoarthritis in particular – their etiology, occurrence, natural history, treatments, prediction, disease monitoring, and disease burden – to allow for better healthcare decision-making and disease prevention. I also have a particular interest in the role of meniscus in osteoarthritis. I use a multidisciplinary approach to study osteoarthritis, including tissue biobanking and proteomics, structural imaging, and population-wide register based studies of epidemiology and health economics.
