  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.
  Can we predict osteoarthritis? Investigating its genetic risk after knee joint injury
  Dr F Watt, Prof T Vincent
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Osteoarthritis (OA) affects 9 million people in the UK and is the main reason for costly total joint replacement. Knee OA is the commonest form, but we still have much to understand about its initiation.
  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 image-based method for the quantitative assessment of cartilage damage from CT images as a biomarker in osteoarthritis
  Dr NH Lim, Dr B Papiez
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
A major hurdle in the development of disease modifying osteoarthritis (OA) drugs is that there is no robust quantitative biomarker for the disease.
  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.
  Does angiotensin signaling control NGF-mediated pain in osteoarthritis?
  Prof T Vincent, Dr F Watt
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Pain in osteoarthritis (OA) is the most important clinical symptom in disease and poses a massive societal burden. We are one of the only groups worldwide who measures spontaneous painful behavior in mice with OA [1], [2].
  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.
