Bone repair materials are rapidly becoming a hot topic in the field of biomedical materials due to being an important means of repairing human bony deficiencies and replacing hard tissue.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Development of image analysis methods and software to study musculoskeletal diseases using artificial intelligence (AI)
  Dr Claudia Lindner, Prof T Cootes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases affect an increasing number of the population globally. In the UK, on average 3 in 10 people are affected, which increases to 1 in 2 in the age group 65+.
  Development of biomechanically musculoskeletal models and its application in understanding of ageing process for health
  Dr W Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process in health is one of main research topics currently and in the near future. The key icon for ageing in health is daily movements, e.g.walking.

  The Role of the Media in Influencing Perceptions ofOsteoporosis and its Treatment
  Dr Z Paskins
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis; media. The media is a key social influence on understanding of health and illness. In the context of osteoporosis, a condition of fragile bones, the media have been blamed for the global decline in uptake of osteoporosis treatment; however, little is known about how osteoporosis is described in the media.
  Bio-Tribology of synovial joint arthroplasty (NMUF2019)
  Dr N Morris, Dr H Rahnejat
Application Deadline: 7 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An increasing proportion of the population suffer from joint pain which stems from wear and tear, injury and arthritis. In severe cases the only option is to completely replace the joint.
  Sunlight exposure and cutaneous production of vitamin D in Black African/Afro-Caribbean adults
  Dr M Farrar, Prof L Rhodes, Prof A Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main source of vitamin D is through skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and is associated with reduced incidence of several cancers and immune-mediated disorders.
  Bio-inspired and biomimetic ceramic composites for medical applications
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural structural materials such as seashell nacre, human teeth and bones exhibit remarkable mechanical properties i.e. with combined high strength and toughness.

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Laser tools for orthopedic surgery
  Dr B Peterson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a need for effective cutting systems for generating fine-scale cuts into bone during orthopaedic surgery. Various approaches have been tried, including for example ultrasonic devices, but so far no appropriate technique has been identified other than mechanical saws and drills for larger, much rougher cutting.
  Apply biomechanical finite-element analysis and computer simulation techniques into the diagnostic software for further improving the validity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Invent a novel AI-based method for osteoporotic fracture risk assessment by Localized Bone Mineral Density and Radiomics Biomarker analysis, and further improve the accuracy and sensitivity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Manipulating bone tissue regeneration by bivalent cations
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone healing or repair is a biological process that can take weeks to months and patients suffering from bone fractures usually need extended time off work and away from normal activities.
  Unraveling the signal regulation network of cell adhesion, migration, and invasion in podosomes and invadopodia
  Dr C Yu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrin-mediated adhesions, such as podosomes and invadopodia, are the biophysical anchor to sense and to translate mechanobiological signals into various cellular events.
