This is an exciting, interdisciplinary project that brings together social science, data science and engineering, and will give the student invaluable skills for a career in academia or the medical technology sector.
  Epidemiology and outcomes of psoriatic arthritis
  Dr G Jones, Prof G Macfarlane, Dr R Hollick
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) presents a unique clinical challenge. Characterised by inflammatory joint disease, enthesitis, skin and nail disease, it is also associated with vascular risk and increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  Exploring the influence of proteogenomics in patients receiving biologic drugs for treatment of psoriatic arthritis
  Prof A Barton, Dr James Bluett, Dr N Nair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis, associated with the chronic skin condition psoriasis, which causes joint inflammation.
  Predicting treatment response in juvenile idiopathic arthritis using a single cell genomics based approach
  Prof W Thomson, Dr S Smith, Mr P Martin, Prof A Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a group of chronic arthropathies of unknown cause which can result in long-term disability and poor quality of life for children and can continue well into adult life.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Characterising B cells in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Their role in susceptibility, pathogenesis, and treatment response
  Dr S Viatte, Dr M Menon, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints. In the UK, some patients who fail to respond to methotrexate (MTX) and TNF inhibitors (TNFi) are started on rituximab, and 20% will experience a favourable clinical response.
  Exploring the transcriptomic and chromatin landscapes of fibroblast-like synoviocytes in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr S Eyre, Mr P Martin, Dr AM Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genetic studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been successful in identifying regions of the genome which contribute to disease risk, but it is often unclear which genes they effect.
  Immune phenotyping of refractory rheumatoid arthritis disease
  Prof Maya Buch, Dr S Viatte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been transformed with the introduction of targeted therapies twenty years ago (comprising biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, bDMARDS; and the more recent small molecule JAK inhibitors).

  Prof M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  Improved classification of myositis disease subtypes using statistical genetics approaches for stratified medicine
