Erin Paterson


Research Technician

I am a senior research technician working within the Centre for Osteoarthritis Pathogenesis, whose main focus is biomarker research.  I have been at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology since 2008, initially with the Translational Research group and now Dr Fiona Watt’s group as part of the Centre’s translational team.

Currently my main role is providing support for the Knee Injury Cohort at the Kennedy (KICK) study.  This study follows a cohort of 150 participants over 5 years, examining the relationship between molecular response to joint injury and future OA development.  I develop and validate both novel and established immunoassays for the measurement of serum, plasma and synovial fluid biomarkers.  I also co-ordinate sample processing and bioarchiving systems for the OA Centre biosample collections, including KICK, in addition to other projects with our collaborators.
