  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
  Juvenile Skeletal Response to Changing Biomechanical Forces at the Talocrural Joint Throughout Development
  Dr C Cunningham, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 13 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the ways in which the juvenile skeleton responds to changing forces is key to understanding the development of trabecular structure and organisation.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  modelling skeletal dysplasias in zebrafish.
  Dr H Roehl, Dr M Balasubramanian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whole genome sequencing studies have led to a vast amount of new candidate genes for human diseases.
  Rational design of selective modulators of skeletal myosin
  Dr A Fornili, Dr J Ochala
Application Deadline: 14 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK) starting January 2020 in Dr. Arianna Fornili’s group at Queen Mary University of London and Dr.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
  Role of Hedgehog signalling in skeletal muscle regeneration
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscle to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of stem cells called satellite cells.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
