  Deep Phenotyping of Crohn’s Patients using a Precision Imaging Approach to Identify Drivers and Stratify Risk of Wasting and Myosteatosis
  Dr G Moran, Prof P Greenhaff, Prof P Gowland, Dr M Brookes
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Up to 75% of hospitalized Crohn’s disease (CD) patients are malnourished and as many as 50% are in negative nitrogen balance(1), but variations in muscle mass and quality in this group is poorly characterised as are the drivers of such pathophysiology.
  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin
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%.
  PhD studentship in Cellular Medicine – Strategies to reverse muscle wasting in chronic respiratory disease entities (RDF19/HLS/AS/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ageing is associated with skeletal muscle loss (sarcopenia), which results in limited strength and independence, as well as impaired metabolic health.
  ECLIPSE: Effect of carnitine on Liver steatosis, Insulin sensitivity, Plasma glucose, Skeletal muscle metabolism and Energetics - a pilot study
  Prof G Aithal, Prof P Greenhaff, Dr S Bawden, Prof P Gowland
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
This ambitious project unites institutional research priorities in translational imaging, liver disease and musculoskeletal health.
  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.
  Exciting opportunity to investigate the effect of B-alanine supplementation on skeletal and cardiac muscle function in older adults
  Dr R Jones, Dr J Richards
Application Deadline: 24 January 2019
Ref. ISPAR-BSS1. Department. Institute of Sport and Physical Activity Research (ISPAR). Please note. Actual location of study will be at the Bedford Campus.
  Investigation into the biological effects of exercise training on muscle wasting in patients with lung disease (ref: SF18/APP/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Applications accepted all year round
Accentuated skeletal muscle loss in patients with non-communicable diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a strong independent predictor of hospitalisation and mortality.

  Dr A G Borycki, Prof C A Johnson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project. Ciliopathies are a group of inherited developmental disorders caused by mutations affecting the structure or function of motile and non-motile cilia.
