  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.
  Service Delivery evaluation of a MSK pathway in North Hampshire
  Dr D Newell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Lead Institute / Faculty. University of Southampton/Medicine. Main Supervisor. David Newell. Other members of the supervisory team.
  PhD Studentship in biomechanical assessment of a novel spinal surgery aimed at patients with low back pain
  Dr N Newell
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of spine biomechanics, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The research involves biomechanical assessment of a novel spinal surgery aimed at patients with low back pain.
  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.
  Developing culture models of the degenerate IVD niche to test Notochordal cell therapies
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr 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, Dr 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..
