  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  The effects of therapeutic interventions and their underpinning mechanisms in patients with cardiovascular disease and low skeletal muscle strength and mass (RDF19/HLS/SER/O'DOHERTY)
  Dr A O'Doherty
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Abnormally low skeletal muscle strength and mass, termed sarcopenia, is related to increased hospital admissions, disability, reduced quality of life and risk of early mortality.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating new redox-signalling mechanisms that act to maintain healthy tissues during ageing
  Prof E Veal, Prof M Jackson, Dr N Conlon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Summary. This iCASE MRC studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to identify new molecular mechanisms, that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases.
  PhD studentship in Cellular Medicine – Strategies to reverse muscle wasting in chronic respiratory disease entities (RDF19/HLS/AS/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ageing is associated with skeletal muscle loss (sarcopenia), which results in limited strength and independence, as well as impaired metabolic health.
  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
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, Dr K Whysall, Dr I Kanakis
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
  Dr L Methven, Dr S Lignou
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
