  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.
  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.
  An organotypic model of the bone remodelling process
  Dr A Naylor, Dr L Grover
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Project Background. Maintenance of bone integrity is a key medical challenge, especially in our ageing population. Bone tissue is actively produced, remodelled and repaired throughout life and disruption of this process causes fragility and disability.
  Modelling and assessment of diffusion processes of strontium-based bone fillers and its effect on human tissues
  Dr H Batchelor, Dr J Camilleri, Prof PR Cooper
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Loss of bone can occur due to disease or trauma. From the dental and orthopaedic perspective, bone loss can occur following dental infections in non-vital teeth, infections after implant placement and trauma.
  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.
  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.
  Developing Bone Secondary Microenvironments for Personalised Medicine
  Prof KE Tanner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the A*STAR Research Attachment Programme, through which students spend the middle 2 years conducting research at one of the A*STAR Research Institutes in Singapore, under the supervision of an A*STAR supervisor.
  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.
