Associate Professor in Paediatrics, NorthWest Academic Centre (Chair, Professor Peter Ebeling)
Paediatric Endocrinologist Sunshine Hospital and Ballarat Health
Associate Professor Christine Rodda, Paediatric Endocrinologist, is a medical graduate and post graduate of the University of Melbourne. She undertook her doctoral studies with Professor T. John Martin in the area of the oncofetal role of parathyroid hormone related protein, and her post-doctoral studies were with Professor Henry Kronenberg at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where she studied the skeletal effects of bisphosphonates in animal models.
Associate Professor Christine Rodda is a Paediatric Endocrinologist with nearly 30 years of clinical experience in this field, and she is a Past President of the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group (APEG). She initially trained with the late Dr David Grant, Professor Michael Preece and Professor David Dunger at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London. Her major areas of research and clinical expertise include genetic disorders of calcium and vitamin D metabolism and metabolic bone disease, vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy, infancy and childhood and vitamin D deficiency in autoimmune disorders, specifically Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, and osteopenia of prematurity, with 47 publications, including articles published in Science and The Lancet. In November 2012, after 13 years as Head of Paediatric Endocrinology at Monash Medical Centre, she stepped down from this position to take up an academic position in Paediatrics with the University of Melbourne, and with Endocrinologist and Chair of the NorthWest Academic Centre, Professor Peter Ebeling at Western Health, Sunshine Hospital. She will also have a lead role in developing the new paediatric course at Sunshine Hospital for MD students. Clinically Associate Professor Christine Rodda plans to develop an integrated, multidisciplinary transition and paediatric diabetes service at Sunshine Hospital, and together with Professor Ebeling, she is working to strengthen links between Endocrinology and Diabetes Services at Western Health and Ballarat Health Services, with a specific focus on developing a transition clinic for young adults with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus at Ballarat Health.
