Associate Professor Tania Crotti is a Medical Researcher and Education Specialist in the School of Biomedicine, (Sch Biomed) Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (FHMS), The University of Adelaide. She was awarded a BHealthSci (Hons) in 1997 then worked as a Research Assistant in the Department of Pathology, University of Adelaide.
In 2002 A/Prof. Crotti completed her PhD on the mechanisms responsible for pathological bone remodelling in inflammatory conditions (funded by a Dora Lush, NHMRC Scholarship).

A/Prof. Crotti subsequently worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston USA 2003-2008. She was awarded a CJ Martin, NHMRC Fellowship to characterize the mechanisms regulating expression of the beta 3 integrin gene during osteoclast differentiation. In 2006 A/Prof. Crotti was awarded an American Arthritis Foundation Fellowship to investigate the role of cell-substrate interactions in regulating molecular pathways and genes associated with terminal osteoclast activation.

A/Prof. Crotti returned to Adelaide in 2008 to continue her work in the emerging field of Osteoimmunology. Her main research focus is to unravel the mediators of osteoclast differentiation and activation in order to arrest the localised bone loss associated with diseases such as peri-implant loosening, periodontal disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Her more recent interest extends to bone loss associated with chemotherapy, mechanisms and assessment of pain in RA and Endometriosis and the patient experience for those with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

A/Prof Crotti coordinates Biology for Nursing Practice (1st yr Nursing) and Investigative Cell Biology (3rd yr Bch Health and Med Science). In recognition of her contributions to teaching , A/Prof Crotti has been the recipient of a FHMS Executive Dean’s Learning and Teaching Prize and Development Award (2013). a Beacon award for Developing Coursework Students as Researchers and using Evidence-Based Practice (2017) and most recently an Executive Deans Award for Teaching Excellence (FHMS) (2022).

A/Prof Crotti is currently the Manager of Postgraduate Coordinators, Sch Biomed and PGC for the Sch Biomed and AMS whilst being actively involved in the supervision of Honours and PhD students. As of 2021, A/Prof Crotti has co-led a Community of Practice for PGCs and HDR supervisors. For her leadership and mentorship in Research Education, in 2021 she was made a Senior Fellow in Higher Education Advance and was nominated for the National Eureka Award and for the STEMM Educator of the Year, SA Science Excellence & Innovation Awards.

Associate Professor Crotti's primary research is in the field of pathological processes of bone and joint diseases, in particular, inflammation-induced bone loss (Osteoimmunology).

The Bone and Joint Research Laboratories carry out basic science and clinical research to explore three common bone pathologies: rheumatoid arthritis, periodontal disease and orthopaedic implant failure. A/Prof Crotti is particularly interested in taking a more systemic approach to understand not only the bone pathology but associated effects on pain and well being. Recent collaborations include:

  •  Dr Christina Boros (Vale) and Dr Mark Friswell, Paediatric Rheumatology Department at the Women and Children's Hospital, Adelaide to understand the experiences of children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis,
  • Prof Mark Hutchinson, the Centre for Nanoscale Biophotonics at the University of Adelaide
  • A/Professor Mihir Wechalekar, Rheumatology Division at Flinders University to explore the mechanisms of pain in inflammatory arthritis,
  • Professor Joanne Bowen, Mucositis Research Group at the University of Adelaide to investigate Chemotherapeutic effects on Bone. 
  • A/Professor Susan Evans, Adelaide Medical School and co-founded the not-for-profit, Pelvic Pain Foundation of Australia, to explore the Language of Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis
  • Professor Miranda Ven Hoeff, Adelaide Medical School and Executive Director at Military and Emergency Services Health Australia, on adjunct therapy to enhance the mental health and well being of current and former Australian servicemen

As an Education Specialist and member of the Adelaide Education Academy, Associate Professor Crotti is active in evidence-based teaching and research.  Her particular interest is to support supervisors and Postgraduate Coordinators in supporting the well being of Higher Degree Research (HDR) Students. In the undergraduate space, A/Prof Crotti has presented internationally on the preparation of undergraduate students for a career in research and authentic assessment. Most recently she has teamed with the Leaning analytics team to assess the effects of effective communication on student outcomes and with the support of a Learning and Teaching Advancement Grant is working on a project to "Improving our understanding of the drivers of the HDR student experience at the University of Adelaide"

Bone and Joint Osteoimmunology Laboratory
Projects Available

Research area: Musculoskeletal research: Bone and Joint Osteoimmunology Lab:

Research Project 1 

Title: Bone and Joint histomorphometry and immunohistochemistry in a murine model of inflammatory arthritis and pain

Project description: Persistent pain and enhanced reactivity to pain, including that experienced in Rheumatoid Arthritis is now appreciated to involve bidirectional communication between the peripheral immune, spinal immune and brain immune systems. The Bone and Joint Osteoimmunology Lab utilise a murine animal model of inflammatory arthritis, the Collagen Antibody Induced Arthritis (CAIA) model. In collaboration with Neuroinflammopharmacology and the CNBP they aim to understand and modulate the signalling involved in inflammation, bone loss and pain. The aims of this project are: To analyse microCT imaging of the bone and joint 2. Immunohistochemistry analyses of joint tissue to assess cells involved in bone turnover and pain receptors.

Projects available for: Third Year / Honours
Location: Helen Mayo Building

Research project start:

Semester 1 2022 Third Year
Semester 1 and 2 2022 Honours

Special requirements: Nil

 

Research Project 2

Title: Objective assessment of pain in Rheumatoid Arthritis utilising neuroimmunology and biophotonics.

Project description: There are currently no objective tests to diagnose or quantify persistent pain.  Nor are there tools to aid the selection of the best drug treatment for each patient.  Persistent pain and enhanced reactivity to pain, including that experienced in RA, is now appreciated to involve bidirectional communication between the peripheral immune, spinal immune and brain immune systems. This project will extend our work from other persistent pain populations to create a novel diagnostic toolkit that can collectively provide an objective differential measure of musculoskeletal disease and pain experience. Using patient biological specimens and clinical data obtained in collaboration with the Rheumatology Department at the Flinders Clinical Centre we are applying novel hyperspectral imaging to objectively assess pain. 

Projects available: Honours / HDR / Masters
Location: Helen Mayo Building- The Bone and Joint Immunology lab and the Centre for Nanoscale Biophotonics
Research project start: Semester 1 2021
Special requirements: Police Clearance, vaccination required- the project will involve interaction with patients in the clinic to collect data and biostatistical analysis

 

Research Project 3: Musculoskeletal research; Paediatric Health

Title: Understanding the patient experience, complications and response to treatments in our SA population of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Project description: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common disease seen in paediatric rheumatology clinics. In South Australia (SA) at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH), JIA is treated according to national and international published guidelines (Davies, Rheumatology 2010;). However, detailed clinical information about these patients is not easily available. We have recently established a data bank with ethical approval to continue to collect Patient Reported Experiences and clinical data such as: demographics, JIA subtype, disease onset, complications, juvenile arthritis disease activity scores, investigation results and treatment. Our overarching aim is to better identify at-risk populations, and improve management and thus outcomes for our patients. Additionally, we aim to use the information we collect from patients with JIA to set up combined clinics between the rheumatology and other specialist departments in order to deliver holistic care. In order to do so, current projects aim to 1. Understanding the patient experience. 2. Understand the prevalence and nature of comorbidities in the SA population 3 Understand the patient experience and significance of this in overall JIA management.

Projects available: Honours / HDR / Masters
Location: The Women and Children's Hospital, North Adelaide

Research project start: Semester 1 and 2

Special requirements: Police Clearance, vaccination required- the project will involve interaction with patients in the clinic to collect data and biostatistical analysis.

 

Research Project 4: Musculoskeletal research; Cancer treatment, bone health and pain

Title: Understanding the effects of cancer, treatment and nutrition on bone and pain

The effects of cancer and its treatment on bone health and consequent morbidity are under-recognised by the general community. In particular, chemotherapy used to treat advanced breast cancer has a highly detrimental effect on bone. Changes in bone architecture and/or turnover as a result of chemotherapy treatment can increase the risk of fractures and have additional negative consequences on the individual. By enhancing our understanding and identifying this risk we can better target interventions to reduce the impact on quality of life and financial burden on the individual and society.

Using an established rat model of breast cancer, we will investigate the effects of cancer and treatment on bone. Three-dimensional imaging techniques will be used in conjunction with protein staining and serum analysis to assess the effects on bone structure, volume and turnover.

 

Research Project 5:  Up to 90% of the adult population is affected by some form of chronic Periodontitis, and almost half being diagnosed with destructive periodontitis (PD). Thus, effective and sustainable treatments modalities need to be available to reduce the alveolar bone recession and tooth loss seen in this population. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) have been identified as a group of specific targets that effectively reduce bone destruction and inflammation in vitro and in vivo. Our recent in vivo investigations utilized a systemic oral treatment method that demonstrated the ability of broad-acting HDACi 1179.4b to suppress alveolar bone loss in periodontitis. However, given the widespread expression of HDACs throughout the body, local delivery of these inhibitors would be a preferable therapeutic option. Thus, we have been investigating the potential of using a hydrogel as carrier for of HDACi 1179.4b. Preliminary data in an in vitro study of monocytes/macrophages with the Hydrogel and the novel HDACi 1179.4b (unpublished) show no signs of toxicity. We hypothesize that the topical local administration in a murine model of periodontitis, in the form of an oral ‘gingival paste’, will be a safe and effective target for the pathological cellular activity, increasing efficacy and reducing the risk of any potential side effects. This will be assessed by microCT analysis of bone, immunohistocytochemistry for inflammatory and bone cell markers and newly applied HDAC Enzyme Immunoassay Kits.

Research Project 6:  Up to 90% of the adult population is affected by some form of chronic Periodontitis, and almost half being diagnosed with destructive periodontitis (PD). Thus, effective and sustainable treatments modalities need to be available to reduce the alveolar bone recession and tooth loss seen in this population.

Our recent in vivo investigations utilized a systemic oral treatment method that demonstrated the ability of broad-acting HDACi 1179.4b to suppress alveolar bone loss in periodontitis.

Preliminary data in an in vitro study of monocytes/macrophages with the Hydrogel and the novel HDACi 1179.4b (unpublished) show no signs of toxicity. Administration of HDACi hydrogel to bone cells (osteoclasts and osteoblasts) and immune cells (monocytes and macrophages) with the presence of P. gingivalis LPS in vitro aims to investigate the efficacy of HDACi 1179.4b hydrogel compound on bone and immune cells in a simulated inflammatory environment to mimic periodontal disease. Components of P. gingivalis such as LPS are recognised as main virulence factors responsible for the pathogenesis of PD. Several studies have theorised that P. gingivalis LPS can activate cells by binding to different membrane receptors expressed on macrophages to induce inflammation as well as bone resorption. Therefore, to simulate a periodontopathic inflammatory response, we will have bone and immune cells exposed to P. gingivatis LPS and treated with the HDACi hydrogel. Outputs include RT PCR, immunocytochemical staining, scanning electron microscopy and ELISA.
