Rana is a physiotherapist, Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the University of Melbourne. Her research focuses on musculoskeletal health, primarily osteoarthritis of the knee and hip joints. A major area of her research is the development and/or evaluation of non-drug non-surgical treatment strategies for osteoarthritis, in particular exercise and biomechanical interventions such as orthoses, footwear and gait modification. Her clinical trials have been published in leading medical journals, including JAMA, BMJ and Ann Int Med. Rana’s research is increasingly focused on strategies to support positive behavior change in people with chronic musculoskeletal conditions, particularly adherence to exercise, as well as the evaluation and implementation of remote models of service delivery using the telephone and/or internet. Rana has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers and has received over $17 million in grant funding. She is an Editorial Board Member of Journal of Physiotherapy.
