  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  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.
  Study of the osmopressor response in human volunteers with and without hypertension
  Dr M Carew, Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round
The osmopressor response refers to the increase in blood pressure and associated change in heart rate that occurs in some people after ingestion of water (1).
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Using a novel 3D co-culture model to define metabolic flux maps of different cancer cell types in response to physical activity
  Dr M Morris, Dr A Islam, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
During exercise, and in the presence of sufficient oxygen, glucose is metabolised by muscle cells to produce pyruvate, a metabolic intermediate which is fed into the Kreb’s cycle in the mitochondria to produce large amounts of energy.
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
  Imaging in Preventive Cardiology Research: improving how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people
  Prof P Leeson, Dr A Lewandowski
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
The Preventive Cardiology Research Group aims to improve how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people. The group works in three areas.
  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
