  Understanding the role of TNFRSF11B polymorphisms in osteoprotegerin bioavailability and bone metabolism
  Dr A Daroszewska, Prof R van ‘t Hof
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the effect of the polymorphisms of the TNFRSF11B gene, which encodes osteoprotegerin (OPG), on bone metabolism.
  Bone marrow adipose tissue and the control of bone mass (HORWOODU19MED)
  Prof N Horwood, Prof J Turner
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
In the UK over 3 million people have osteoporosis leading to over 300,000 fragility fractures per year. this costs £1.9 billion for hip fractures alone.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  Regulating Shedding of Syndecan-3: A Novel Approach to Combat Bone Ageing
  Prof R van ‘t Hof, Dr K Yamamoto, Dr A Daroszewska
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is associated with bone loss, osteoporosis and fragility fractures, which impact on health and quality of life. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying age-related bone loss are currently largely unknown.
  Characterisation of a pre-osteoblast subset of human mesenchymal stem cells: implications for novel osteoarthritis and osteoporosis treatment development
  Dr E Jones, Prof D McGonagle
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP) are the most common age-related skeletal diseases. They seriously affect patient’s quality of life and represent a significant healthcare burden to the UK society.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round
Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture - Ref: SL1UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Functional significance of IL-1B in breast cancer bone metastases
  Dr P Ottewell
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and leading cause of death in women worldwide. Up to 75% of patients with advanced breast cancer develop bone metastases and patients with this condition have a median survival of around 2-3 years.
  PhD Studentship: Deciphering molecular crosstalk in the musculoskeletal system: vesicle-mediated communication and its impact on bone health
  Dr O Davies
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
Application details. Reference number. SSEHS/OD. Start date of studentship. 01/07/2019. Closing date of advert. 22/04/19. Interview date.
  The role of complement properdin in bone biology
  Dr C Stover, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
Bone mineral density is routinely measured in those at risk of developing osteoporosis and in those on various treatments, and informs the management of a growing proportion of the population.
