Personal profile

Public Profile

Dr Tiffany Gill is an Senior Research Fellow in the Adelaide Medical School at the University of Adelaide. Between 2011 and 2015 she was an NHMRC Early Career Fellow focusing on epidemiological issues and health system impacts (including costs) of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions (particularly osteoarthritis (OA), osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA)) within Australia. She originally trained as a physiotherapist and then developed a research interest focusing on the epidemiology of musculoskeletal conditions. Prior to joining the University she worked as a physiotherapist in both the public and private sectors and as a chronic disease epidemiologist with SA Health. She is an Associate Investigator for the North West Adelaide Health Study, a cohort study in the northern and western suburbs of South Australia. Since 2018 she has been a postdoctoral research fellow with the ROSA at SAHMRI.
Tiffany is passionate about addressing the impact of musculoskeletal conditions on the population and the translation of research findings to the population. She has been a long term member of the Board of Arthritis SA and Vice President since 2012. She has also mentored undergraduate and post-graduate students and early career researchers. Tiffany's research continues to aim to increase population awareness and the focus of policy makers on the epidemiological, health economics and population effects of musculoskeletal disorders in the population.
