  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.
  (WIS) Inhibition of osteoclastogenesis for the prevention of bone wasting in human disease
  Prof J Hoyland, Dr J Bella
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Osteoclasts (OCLs) are phagocytic cells that degrade bone as part of its homeostatic regulation. Abnormal activity of OCLs in several pathologies, such as osteoporosis and cancer, results in loss of bone mass, increased risk of fractures, and in an overall increase in significant morbidity and mortality.
  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.
  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).
  An organotypic model of the bone remodelling process
  Dr A Naylor, Dr L Grover
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Project Background. Maintenance of bone integrity is a key medical challenge, especially in our ageing population. Bone tissue is actively produced, remodelled and repaired throughout life and disruption of this process causes fragility and disability.
  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.
  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.
