Josh leads the disorders of mineralisation research group and has recently joined the School of Medical and Health Sciences. His research aims to develop better ways to identify and prevent disease before the onset of clinical symptoms. Josh supervises postgraduate students in a range of research areas including developing tests for chronic diseases, clinical nutrition and lifestyle research as well as developing better evidence to improve healthy ageing.
Josh has 8 years’ experience in the epidemiology of disorders of mineralisation and clinical trials research at the University of Western Australia and the University of Sydney. His National Health and Medical Research Council Career Development Fellowship focuses on better understanding and identification of disorders of mineralization such as vascular calcification and osteoporosis that are often seen in the elderly and those with chronic kidney disease. Josh’s research has been published in leading international medical journals such as Nature, the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, the Journal of the American Heart Association, Nature Genetics, Archives of Internal Medicine and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. His research regularly receives national and international media attention and has attracted more than $1.5 million in funding from 14 local and national peer reviewed grants and scholarships.
Currently, he is conducting research on developing convenient, reliable and safe tests for vascular calcification as well as the identification of mechanism(s) and modifiable factors related to vascular calcification.
