  Cathepsin Z as a novel potential biomarker for osteoporosis
  Dr D Barraclough, Prof L Ranganath
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Dr. Dong Barraclough, Professor Lakshminarayan Ranganath and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  Understanding the role of TNFRSF11B polymorphisms in osteoprotegerin bioavailability and bone metabolism
  Dr A Daroszewska, Prof R van ‘t Hof
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the effect of the polymorphisms of the TNFRSF11B gene, which encodes osteoprotegerin (OPG), on bone metabolism.
  The Effect Of Osteoporosis On Bone Cell Response To Strontium.
  Dr S Clarke, Dr F Buchanan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Osteoporosis mainly affects older people and causes an increased risk of vertebral, hip and wrist fractures with every decade over 50 years of age leading to an incidence of nine million fragility fractures per year worldwide.
  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.
  Why do bones break? The nanomechanics of osteoporotic bone fragility fracture
  Dr R Abel, Prof J Cobb
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
An opportunity has arisen for a 3-year PhD studentship within the Musculoskeletal Laboratory at Imperial College London. The studentship is funded by the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London.
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  PhD Studentship: Deciphering molecular crosstalk in the musculoskeletal system: vesicle-mediated communication and its impact on bone health

Application details. Reference number. SSEHS/OD. Start date of studentship. 01/07/2019. Closing date of advert. 22/04/19. Interview date.
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture - Ref: SL1UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Characteristics and impact of back pain in older women from the UK – a mixed methods study focusing on mild versus moderate/severe vertebral fractures
  Dr E Clark, Prof R Gooberman-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are common in older women. 12% of women over aged 65 have at least one vertebral deformity, the majority of which are osteoporotic in origin.
