Chris Whitton

 

Chris leads equine orthopaedic research at the University of Melbourne. This involves a multidisciplinary approach using biomechanics, microstructural analysis and epidemiology.

Chris brings a clinical focus to his research due to his role in investigating and treating lame horses as a specialist equine surgeon within the Veterinary Teaching Hospital where he has worked since November 2004. Chris trained as a specialist at the University of Sydney where he completed a PhD before moving to work at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, England as a specialist surgeon and scientist. He ran his own referral practice and scintigraphy unit at the Newcastle Equine Centre from 1999 to 2004.
Chris has lectured and published extensively on lameness and musculoskeletal injury prevention. His current research interests are in equine limb function, subchondral bone and the epidemiology of equine limb injuries.
