  Strain Measurement in Osteoarthritic Cartilage (SMOC)
  Prof G Blunn, Dr G Tozzi
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Professor Gordon Blunn and Dr Gianluca Tozzi.
  Diabetic osteoarthritis : Investigating its causes and discovering interventions using tissue engineered human cartilage
  Dr JR Henstock
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. People with diabetes have more than twice the risk of developing osteoarthritis than the general population.
  What Lies Beneath? – Imaging biomarkers of osteoarthritic cartilage disease
  Dr R Meeson, Prof A Pitsillides
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Osteoarthritis (OA), common in humans and dogs, is the painful and debilitating end-destination of diseased joints. OA is typified by articular cartilage degradation, subchondral cyst and bone marrow lesion (BML) formation, osteophytogenesis and significant modifications to bone mass and geometry.
  Endocytosis in joint health and disease
  Dr K Yamamoto, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent age-related joint disorder that causes pain and disability. Over 8 million people suffer from OA in the UK alone, but there are no disease-modifying drugs available.
  Nanoscale damage markers for early osteoarthritis detection in the bone-cartilage unit
  Dr H Gupta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Musculoskeletal disorders like osteoarthritis (OA) increase pain and reduce quality of life for millions of people worldwide, with 8 million people seeking treatment in the UK and hospital expenditures over $40 billion in the US alone.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  The role of long non coding RNA in the pathology of osteoarthritis joint disease
  Dr S Jones, Prof J Lord
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the role of “long non coding RNA” in osteoarthritis (OA). OA is a painful joint condition and a leading causes of disability in the world.
  Optimisation of techniques for improving the storage of osteochondral allograft tissue
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr PI Milner, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round
We will investigate the biochemical properties of living human articular cartilage tissue so as to optimise the conditions for storing osteochondral allograft tissue used in transplantation.
  Sol to scaffold: Novel hybrid formulations for 3D biofabrication of in vitro tissue models
  Dr G Poologasundarampillai, Dr L Grover, Prof PR Cooper
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Ricky Wildman (University of Nottingham) 4th supervisor. Background. Degenerative skeletal diseases such as severe osteoporosis and osteoarthritis affect more than 200 million people worldwide.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
