Biographical details

Dr Steve Kamper is Associate Professor in the School of Public Health and leads the paediatric pain theme in the Musculoskeletal Health Sydney research group. He has been continuously supported by NHMRC fellowships since 2008, and is currently NHMRC Career Development Fellow. He has over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, has presented his work in >10 countries, and received >$2 million in competitive research funding from Australia, Ireland, Canada, and Noway.

Dr Kamper is editor of the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physial Therapy, associate editor in the Cochrane Back and Neck Group, Vice-chair of the Executive Orgainsing Committee of the International Back and Neck Pain Forum, and member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Australia New Zealand Musculoskeletal Clinicial Trials Network.

Supporting and connecting early career researchers is an important part of Steve's professional life. In 2011 he established the International Collaboration of Early Career Researchers (http://the icecream.org), he has provided input regarding ECR programming at International conferences, conducts mentoring and training, and gives lectures on academic skills such as writing and presenting.

Research interests

Dr Kamper's main interest is in musculoskeletal pain (especially back and neck pain) in adolescents and adults. In particular he is interested in how pain interacts with broader aspects of health such as physical activity, obesity, substance use, mental health and chronic diseases. The aim of this work is to move the field forward by combining perspectives from clinical management and population health.

Other research interests include patient expectations and placebo effects, mechanisms of treatment effect, research methods, and outcome measurement. His track record includes publication of systematic reviews and meta-analyses, RCTs, cohort studies, clinimetric research, and Delphi surveys.

Teaching and supervision

Steve's teaching involves mainly supervision of postgraduate research students, and teaching research methods and evidence-based practice skills to clinicians.
