Transverse tubules are surface membrane invaginations in skeletal and cardiac muscle.
  The role of integrins in muscle stem cell function (MAYERU20DTP)
  Prof U Mayer, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Men and women lose 50% of their skeletal muscle mass in later life through a process called age-related sarcopenia, characterised by a combined loss of muscle mass, endurance and strength.
  Why do muscle stem cells need a primary cilium for effective regeneration? (MUNSTERBERGU20DTP2)
  Prof A E Munsterberg, Prof U Mayer
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle is important for health and well-being throughout life. To understand better the factors required for the healthy maintenance of this important tissue, we study muscle stem cells (MuSC).
  The effect of low-frequency and low-energy Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMFs) on muscle cell precursors: new insights into cellular mechanisms and translational research applications.
  Prof N Bury, Dr F Masieri, Dr A Rajic
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a motivated graduate to join our award-nominated Biotechnology Unit Lab to work on an exciting project under the supervision of Dr Federica F.
  A bottom-up approach to Muscle Mechanics
  Dr A Roy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Muscles exhibit highly complex behaviour made up of thousands of individual muscle fibres, each with different properties, interacting with each other and the surrounding bio-mechanical structures.
  Epigentic control of muscle development: the impact of chromatin accessibility on gene regulation (MUNSTERBERGU20DTP1)
  Prof A E Munsterberg, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle is important for health and well-being throughout life. To understand better the factors that contribute to the maintenance of this important tissue, we study its development in the embryo.
  Influence of a dietary supplement on blood and muscle oxidative stress biomarkers, skeletal muscle respiration and exercise performance in healthy adults
  Dr S Bailey, Dr NC Bishop, Dr N Martin
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Spatial models for muscle fibre data
  Dr TM Davies, Dr M Schofield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In humans and other mammals, individual muscle fibres can be broadly classified into two distinct categories — "slow contracting" (type I) and "fast contracting" (type II).
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
