  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Regulation of the tissue degradation in osteoarthritis

  The role of purinergic signalling in cartilage and joint health (CLARKU20DTP)
  Prof I Clark, Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

ATP is well known for its role in intracellular energy metabolism but ATP and a number of related nucleotides are also important extracellular signalling molecules.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Testing whether pain underlies the altered behaviour of zebrafish osteoarthritis mutants
  Dr C L Hammond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
