  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
