  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.
  The molecular biology of back pain: identifying determinants of spine health amenable for therapeutic intervention
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
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.
  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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Stratification of nucleus pulposus cell sub-populations during intervertebral disc development, ageing and degeneration.
  Dr S Richardson, Prof J Hoyland
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Back pain is a leading cause of disability in the UK and intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration has been identified as the cause in a high proportion of patients.
  To investigate genetic variants for pain phenotypes using genome-wide association studies based on the UK Biobank cohort
  Dr W Meng, Prof B Smith
Applications accepted all year round
The UK Biobank cohort released the genetic information relating to 500,000 participants in September 2017.
  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..
  Elucidation of the anti-inflammatory properties of human mesenchymal stem cells for application in cell therapies for the treatment of intervertebral disc degeneration
  Dr S Richardson, Prof J Hoyland
Applications accepted all year round
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) offer huge potential in regenerative medicine and we propose their use in treatment of intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD), a cause of back pain.
  Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy
  Dr N Gardiner, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life.
