  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.
  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.
  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.
  Functional Electrical Stimulation Control in Paraplegia
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round
"According to statistics from charities such as Every Eight Hours and Spinal Research, there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK and a new person is injured every eight hours.
  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.
  An evaluation of the safety of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia
  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
  Dr B Hicks, Dr C Cardwell
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Finasteride and dutasteride are 5α-reductase inhibitors, medications that are commonly used to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).
  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.
  The role of complement properdin in bone biology
  Dr C Stover, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
Bone mineral density is routinely measured in those at risk of developing osteoporosis and in those on various treatments, and informs the management of a growing proportion of the population.
  Regulating Shedding of Syndecan-3: A Novel Approach to Combat Bone Ageing
  Prof R van ‘t Hof, Dr K Yamamoto, Dr A Daroszewska
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is associated with bone loss, osteoporosis and fragility fractures, which impact on health and quality of life. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying age-related bone loss are currently largely unknown.
