Thesis title: Determinants of skeletal fragility in under-served populations
Synopsis: Women with premature ovarian insufficiency and populations with atypical femoral fractures represent two underserved groups with complex bone disease and high fracture risk. The aim of my PhD is to characterise the clinical, genetic and structural determinants of skeletal fragility in these two populations, and identify opportunities for targeted intervention in order to optimise bone health.
