  Investigation of mechanistic links between metabolic stress, inflammation and apoptosis in cartilage damage in osteoarthritis
  Dr M Sharif
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease in the elderly population, causing significant pain and disability. It is estimated that by by 2020, OA will be the forth leading cause of disability in the world.
  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.
  Development of image-based method for the quantitative assessment of cartilage damage from CT images as a biomarker in osteoarthritis
  Dr NH Lim, Dr B Papiez
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
A major hurdle in the development of disease modifying osteoarthritis (OA) drugs is that there is no robust quantitative biomarker for the disease.
  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.
  Post-transcriptional gene regulation during chondrogenesis
  Dr S Tew
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Healthy cartilage in our joints is essential for us to maintain an active life into old age. The cells that maintain cartilage are called chondrocytes and have a specialised phenotype that is initiated during development and then maintained throughout our lives.
  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.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
We aim to understand how MMP13 is transcriptionally regulated and whether a newly identified enhancer is involved in normal and osteoarthritic cartilage.
  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.
  Pathophysiological characterization of novel biomarkers and development of tests for diagnosis and monitoring osteoarthritis
  Dr M Sharif
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting the adult population. Currently, definitive diagnosis of OA is usually made using plain x-rays at relatively advanced stages of the disease when there is irreparable damage to the joint(s).
  Can we predict osteoarthritis? Investigating its genetic risk after knee joint injury
  Dr F Watt, Prof T Vincent
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Osteoarthritis (OA) affects 9 million people in the UK and is the main reason for costly total joint replacement. Knee OA is the commonest form, but we still have much to understand about its initiation.
