  Strategies to retard the decline in skeletal muscle mass and function in older age (Ref: SF20/SER/SAXTON)
  Prof J Saxton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle mass and function decline progressively in older age. Evidence suggests that maintenance of a healthy body composition, including skeletal muscle mass, is an important factor influencing metabolic health and functional independence in older people.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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
  Prof L Methven, Dr S Lignou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
