Professor Rana Hinman awarded NHMRC research fellowship
CHESM's Professor Rana Hinman was recently awarded a prestigious National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Research Fellowship.
The fellowship, titled "Lifestyle management of knee osteoarthritis: closing the gaps to reduce disease burden." will run from 2019 to 2023.
Arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions are a National Health Priority Area, and more prevalent in Australia than any other, including cancer, diabetes and obesity. This Research Fellowship will address the problem of knee osteoarthritis, with research focussed on footwear, exercise, weight loss and advice/education, to improve self-management of this condition.
