  (BBSRC DTP) Stratification of nucleus pulposus cell sub-populations during intervertebral disc development, ageing and degeneration.
  Dr S Richardson, Prof J Hoyland
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Back pain is a leading cause of disability in the UK and intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration has been identified as the cause in a high proportion of patients.
  Elucidation of the anti-inflammatory properties of human mesenchymal stem cells for application in cell therapies for the treatment of intervertebral disc degeneration
  Dr S Richardson, Prof J Hoyland
Applications accepted all year round
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) offer huge potential in regenerative medicine and we propose their use in treatment of intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD), a cause of back pain.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round
Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
  Modulatory functions of microglia on medium spiny neuron function and degeneration in stem cell models of Huntington’ Disease
  Prof N Allen, Prof A Rosser
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Studentship Summary. This studentship is part of a SCTN-Training network of 14 studentships, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018) under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network and Grant Agreement No.
  Investigation of long-term sensory neuronal degeneration and pain in adult childhood cancer survivors
  Dr RP Hulse
Applications accepted all year round
Advances in childhood cancer research has led to increased understanding and early diagnosis of cancer, has led to a significant increase in childhood cancer survivorship.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round
Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  The role of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) degeneration in age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function
  Prof MJ Jackson, Prof A McArdle, Dr A Vasilaki
Applications accepted all year round
The NMJ (or motor endplate) is a highly specialised chemical synapse that transmits action potentials from motor neurons to muscle fibres.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round
The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  The molecular biology of back pain: identifying determinants of spine health amenable for therapeutic intervention
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We excel in high quality research that contributes to improved health and quality of life for older people and animals and alleviates chronic diseases at all ages.
  Manipulating the environment of cultured stem cells to optomise the structure and mechanical properties of cartilaginous tissue constructs
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof J Hoyland
Applications accepted all year round
Lower back pain (LBP) is a debilitating, age-related, spinal disease which is a major burden on society. Degeneration of the intervertebral disc (IVD) is a key cause of LBP.
