  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  Using statistical and functional analysis to investigate the contrasting disease specific roles of IL6R and the chr17q12 locus in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma
  Dr J Curtin, Prof A Simpson
Applications accepted all year round
The Arthritis Research UK and Respiratory Centres at the University of Manchester have extensive research programmes investigating the genetic components of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma.
  Development and evaluation of an innovative system for assessing and monitoring of inflammation in the joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis
  Prof D Zheng
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research area. Medical devices and technology. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects ~1% of the global population. Disease Activity Score (DAS) 28 is an internationally recognised indicator of disease status and requires physical examination of 28 joints by a doctor, which is highly subjective and time-consuming.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  Investigating the role of mesenchymal stem cell populations in the pathogenesis of systemic idiopathic juvenile arthritis
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr E Baildam
Applications accepted all year round
The Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We excel in high quality research that contributes to improved health and quality of life for older people and animals and alleviates chronic diseases at all ages.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Exploring the influence of treatment on CD4+ T-cell sub-populations in patients receiving biologic drugs for their inflammatory arthritis
  Prof A Barton, Dr D Plant, Dr S Viatte
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Tumour necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) therapy is ineffective for approximately 20% of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and there is currently no way to predict which patients will not benefit.
  Regulating the inflammatory infiltrate in health and disease: Identification of new therapeutics
  Dr H McGettrick
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate of outstanding ability to join a developing and active research team at The University of Birmingham led by Dr Helen McGettrick www.birmingham.ac.uk/Helen-McGettrick.
  Cardiovascular health in patients with inflammatory joint diseases: a genetic approach to understanding excess mortality
  Dr J Bowes, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Patients with chronic inflammatory joint diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) which is the major contributory factor to the observed early mortality in these patient groups.
  PhD opportunities - Vice Chancellor's Studentships
