Professor Catherine Hill

Professor Catherine Hill is a clinical rheumatologist and epidemiologist with research expertise in osteoarthritis, randomised clinical trials, vasculitis and population epidemiology. As Chief Investigator of the North West Adelaide Health Study, Prof Hill was instrumental in adding the musculoskeletal data collection to this study in 2004. Work from this formed part of the Global Burden of Disease study which identified musculoskeletal diseases as one of the three most important diseases in terms of global disease burden. Prof Hill has led a multicentre NHMRC funded project on the effects of fish oil on symptoms and structural progression in knee osteoarthritis. Collaborations from this have led to two NHMRC funded multi-centre trials in the role of statins and zolendronic acid in the condition. Currently Prof Hill’s research interest is Giant Cell Arteritis, the most common vasculitis affecting the eldery. She established the South Australian Giant Cell Arteritis Registry in 2009 which furthered knowledge of the condition in Australia for the first time and resulted in worldwide collaborations. She is involved in OMERACT (Outcome Measures in Rheumatology) which is an independent initiative of international health professionals.
