He also has an appointment as a Consultant Physician in the Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital one of the major teaching hospitals in Perth and amongst the busiest tertiary hospitals in Australia. His clinical expertise covers all areas of endocrinology and diabetes in which he consults on a weekly basis.


Key Research
Prof Prince has led a research group since 1985. He continues to work with colleagues exploring data collected form 1998 to 2013  the Longitudinal Study of Aging in Women At the current time he collaborates with 8 senior colleagues and 5 students. The current clinical focus is the nutritional and physical determinants of bone and cardiovascular disease. The research approach is to use epidemiological and clinical trial methodology to study various aspects of nutrition. Via the development to international collaborations in the area of genetic epidemiology the group has collaborated clinical data to many studies of role of genetics in the development of the osteoporosis of aging itself a disorder of the elderly mesenchymal stem cell. Over the years this work has resulted in the training and development of a large number of younger researchers and the publication of over 270 papers in high quality journals.
