  Neuromuscular junction development and disease
  Dr C Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are specialized cell membrane domains that facilitate neuronal communication in the intricate nervous system. These synaptic specializations develop in response to molecular interactions between pre- and postsynaptic cells.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Sport-Based Approaches to Monitor and Enhance Health and Performance in the General Population, Athletes and Referees
  Dr A Scanlan, Dr V Dalbo, Dr J Guy, Dr N Elsworthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research seeks to explore various methods and technologies to quantify the training and competition demands, as well as health status and behaviours of team sport athletes and referees.
  Targeting the DNA damage response in spinal muscular atrophy.
  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
  Dr G Hunter, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Running popularity has increased in recent years with events such as The Parkrun, a weekly 5-km run, attracting approximately 105,000 participants nationally per week.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Three-dimensional study in the non-operative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine of unknown aetiology, characterized by a lateral curvature and vertebral rotation.
  Analysis of rare congenital disorders
  Dr A Javed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
