  Diabetic osteoarthritis : Investigating its causes and discovering interventions using tissue engineered human cartilage
  Dr JR Henstock
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. People with diabetes have more than twice the risk of developing osteoarthritis than the general population.
  Nanoscale damage markers for early osteoarthritis detection in the bone-cartilage unit
  Dr H Gupta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Musculoskeletal disorders like osteoarthritis (OA) increase pain and reduce quality of life for millions of people worldwide, with 8 million people seeking treatment in the UK and hospital expenditures over $40 billion in the US alone.
  The role of long non coding RNA in the pathology of osteoarthritis joint disease
  Dr S Jones, Prof J Lord
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the role of “long non coding RNA” in osteoarthritis (OA). OA is a painful joint condition and a leading causes of disability in the world.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
  Stratification of osteoarthritis to improve equine welfare
  Dr M Peffers, Prof P Clegg, Dr V James
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Horse Trust Equine Clinical Scholarship Grant. Location. Liverpool and Leahurst Veterinary Campus. Studentship start date. summer 2019.
  Characterisation of a pre-osteoblast subset of human mesenchymal stem cells: implications for novel osteoarthritis and osteoporosis treatment development
  Dr E Jones, Prof D McGonagle
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP) are the most common age-related skeletal diseases. They seriously affect patient’s quality of life and represent a significant healthcare burden to the UK society.
  Developing co-culture systems to enable the modelling of interactions between cells of the synovial joint
  Dr S Tew
Applications accepted all year round
Synovial joints such as the knees and hips can be considered as multi tissue organs and crosstalk between the tissue types contributes strongly to the maintenance of their effective mechanical function.
  Strain Measurement in Osteoarthritic Cartilage (SMOC)
  Prof G Blunn, Dr G Tozzi
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Professor Gordon Blunn and Dr Gianluca Tozzi.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  Sol to scaffold: Novel hybrid formulations for 3D biofabrication of in vitro tissue models
  Dr G Poologasundarampillai, Dr L Grover, Prof PR Cooper
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Ricky Wildman (University of Nottingham) 4th supervisor. Background. Degenerative skeletal diseases such as severe osteoporosis and osteoarthritis affect more than 200 million people worldwide.
