  Development and evaluation of an innovative system for assessing and monitoring of inflammation in the joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis
  Prof D Zheng
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research area. Medical devices and technology. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects ~1% of the global population. Disease Activity Score (DAS) 28 is an internationally recognised indicator of disease status and requires physical examination of 28 joints by a doctor, which is highly subjective and time-consuming.
  Using statistical and functional analysis to investigate the contrasting disease specific roles of IL6R and the chr17q12 locus in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma
  Dr J Curtin, Prof A Simpson
Applications accepted all year round
The Arthritis Research UK and Respiratory Centres at the University of Manchester have extensive research programmes investigating the genetic components of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  PhD opportunities - Vice Chancellor's Studentships
ARU is home to a dynamic postgraduate research community that benefits from high-quality facilities, a comprehensive Researcher Development Programme, and support from experienced, research-active supervisors.
  Regulating the inflammatory infiltrate in health and disease: Identification of new therapeutics
  Dr H McGettrick
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate of outstanding ability to join a developing and active research team at The University of Birmingham led by Dr Helen McGettrick www.birmingham.ac.uk/Helen-McGettrick.
  The role of cells in the persistence of inflammation
  Prof C Buckley
Applications accepted all year round
A characteristic feature of chronic inflammatory reactions is their persistence and predilection for certain sites. Our group investigates the role that tissue resident stromal cells (fibroblasts) play in determining both the switch to persistence as well as the site at which inflammation occurs.
  A potential role for Epithelial Mesenchymal Trans differentiation (EMT) in the Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Periodontitis is a ubiquitous chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the supporting structures of teeth; the most common form is chronic periodontitis which if untreated results in the breakdown of soft tissues and bone, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
  Developing a three-dimensional research model of neutrophil-mediated tissue destruction during inflammation
  Dr J Hirschfeld, Prof I L C Chapple, Dr M Grant
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The proposed research has the goal to develop a novel 3D model to measure and visualise tissue destruction mediated by migrating neutrophils in vitro.
  To explore inflammation, vascular function and blood rheology, both at rest and in response to mental stress
  Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
This project can be offered either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Please email the prospective supervisor for more details.
