Natalie Sims

Associate Prof Natalie Sims received her PhD from the University of Adelaide, Australia in 1995. She is director of the Bone Cell Biology and Disease Unit at St. Vincent’s Institute, Melbourne, Australia, and a Principal Research Fellow at The University of Melbourne. She is a council member of the Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society, and board member of the International Bone and Mineral Society. In 2010 she was the recipient of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Fuller Albright Award. Her main current research interest is the local control of osteoblast and osteoclast function including the roles of osteoclast-derived coupling factors, Ephrin signalling, and the influences of cytokines that act through gp130, using genetically altered mouse models and in vitro systems. Her goal is to identify pathways that may be manipulated for new therapeutic options for bone and joint disorders.
