  Characteristics and impact of back pain in older women from the UK – a mixed methods study focusing on mild versus moderate/severe vertebral fractures
  Dr E Clark, Prof R Gooberman-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are common in older women. 12% of women over aged 65 have at least one vertebral deformity, the majority of which are osteoporotic in origin.
  Inter-individual differences in the responses of patients with low back pain to exercise interventions.
  Dr C Ryan, Dr S Wellburn, Prof G Atkinson, Prof A Batterham
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The aim of this PhD programme is to investigate if true and clinically important inter-individual differences in response to exercise therapy exist for people with low back pain.
  Quantitative imaging biomarkers for nonspecific low back pain
  Dr P Sewell
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
Personalised biometrics is a rapidly growing area of medical research, which relies on biotechnologies, especially those involving imaging.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round
Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  Developing culture models of the degenerate IVD niche to test Notochordal cell therapies
  Prof C Le Maitre, Prof C Sammon
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
A 3.5 year full-time PhD scholarship is offered by Sheffield Hallam University, UK. Funding is available for. UK Students & EU Students.
  Efficacy testing of biomaterial delivered iPS cells in in vitro cultures systems to mimic the degenerate niche
  Prof C Le Maitre, Prof C Sammon
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Low back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability and morbidity worldwide. It is widely accepted that a major contributor to LBP is intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD).
  Manipulating the environment of cultured stem cells to optomise the structure and mechanical properties of cartilaginous tissue constructs
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof J Hoyland
Applications accepted all year round
Lower back pain (LBP) is a debilitating, age-related, spinal disease which is a major burden on society. Degeneration of the intervertebral disc (IVD) is a key cause of LBP.
  Design and testing of spinal implants
  Prof D Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round
Severe back pain may be treated surgically by removing the intervertebral disc and replacing it with a disc replacement. This project will investigate new designs of disc replacement and use a spine simulator to mechanically test them..
  Development of nanomedicines for the treatment of eye diseases
  Dr VR Kearns, Dr T McDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The overall aim of this project is to develop new ways to deliver drugs to the back of the eye. Diseases involving the back of the eye can lead to sight loss, significantly reducing quality of life and economic opportunities of those affected.
  Exploring the potential for the use of spinal registry data in clinical trials
  Dr G Burnside, Mr M Wilby, Prof T Marson
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Clinical trials using routinely collected outcomes from registries are still relatively rare, but have potential advantages over the traditional model.
