  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Modulation of fortified foods for older adults

Protein requirements increase with age as protein can help minimise sarcopenia and improve immunity. However protein fortified foods are often poorly accepted by older adults and can lead to numerous negative sensory attributes.
