  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.
  PhD Studentship in the role of the Wnt-non canonical pathways in the modulation of lipid metabolism in the articular cartilage and osteoarhtritis
  Dr G Nalesso, Dr B Fielding
Application Deadline: 12 May 2019
The project aims to characterise molecular mechanisms involved in the degradation of the articular cartilage in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis.
  Nanoscale damage markers for early osteoarthritis detection in the bone-cartilage unit
  Dr H Gupta
Application Deadline: 3 May 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.
  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.
  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.
  Poroelasticity and lubrication mechanisms of cartilage in natural synovial joints
  Dr G de Boer, Dr M Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019
In the most recent understanding of the lubrication mechanisms in natural synovial joints it remains uncertain as to how ultra-low friction is generated.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Testing whether pain underlies the altered behaviour of zebrafish osteoarthritis mutants
  Dr C L Hammond
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  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.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  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.
