Professor Christine Le Maitre joined The University of Sheffield in 2022 as a Professor in the Department of Oncology and Metabolism, in the Medical School where she co-leads the Osteoarthritis and Disc Research Group in the Bone and Joint theme.
Professor Le Maitre first moved to Sheffield Hallam University in 2008 as a Senior Lecturer to establish her own research group. Here she was promoted to Reader in 2014 and Professor in 2017. In 2019 Christine was the local committee host for the Society for Back Pain Research (SBPR) Annual Conference. More recently she moved to the Medical School at The University of Sheffield as Professor of Musculoskeletal Cell Biology and Tissue Regeneration and in 2023 was elected to President Elect for the SBPR.
Her research focuses on investigating the pathogenesis of musculoskeletal disorders and novel therapies targeting pathogenesis and regenerative approaches. Working collaboratively nationally and internationally with clinicians, scientists, engineers, industrial partners and patients to pursue an improved understanding of musculoskeletal conditions and utilise this knowledge to develop the next generation of therapies.
We are currently exploring with Christine other possible conferences we can host in Sheffield.
