Dr Marian Schini
Consultant, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals; Clinical Research Fellow, University of Sheffield
Marian completed her training in Endocrinology in 2014. She has been working as a clinical research fellow for the University of Sheffield since 2015, with an interest in osteoporosis and calcium metabolism disorders. She was funded by CIMA to undertake a PhD, focusing on the prevalence and natural history of normocalcaemic hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism. After completing her PhD in 2020, she was appointed as a consultant at the Metabolic Bone Centre at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, but maintained her role as a fellow with the University of Sheffield, to pursue her research interest in bone metabolism further.
Marian has been involved in several research projects in collaboration with researchers from the University of Sheffield, national but also international higher institutions. These projects have led to a number of publications and awards. She is the primary investigator for the POSE study (PINP and Osteoporosis in Sheffield Evaluation), a project aiming to investigate the use of PINP to monitor osteoporosis treatment in clinical practice by non-specialist practitioners. She is also the lead investigator in studies investigating current osteoporosis treatments further, like denosumab and zoledronic acid. Marian has supported and continues to support a number of clinical trials as both a primary and sub-investigator. Some of these studies are on rare disorders of bone metabolism, for which Marian has developed a special interest.
