Dr Amaka C Offiah
Reader in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Imaging and Honorary Consultant Paediatric Radiologist. Deputy Chair of the Black, Asian and Other Minority (BAME) Staff Network.
I am a Reader in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Imaging in the Academic Unit of Child Health at the University and an Honorary Consultant Radiologist at Sheffield Children’s Hostpital NHS Foundation Trust. My particular area of interest is the imaging of children's bones and muscles, specifically in suspected abuse and diseases with which abuse may be confused.
Sheffield is the perfect place for this as it has a busy Emergency Department at the Children's Hospital, the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research, the largest cohort of children with osteogenesis imperfecta in Europe and the Insigneo Institute. This is just to name a few reasons why the work I do is possible, challenging and exciting. Ultimately, I hope that my research contributes to improving children's lives. I'm keenly motivated to influence and promote inclusive cultures and policies within the University of Sheffield and to be a positive role model for BAME students and staff.
