  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin, Prof M.P. Lewis
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 mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  Characterising the skeletal muscle secretome and its role in cardiometabolic disease
  Dr Daniel Kelly, Dr D P Smith
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Faculty of Health & Wellbeing, Sheffield Hallam University. Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre. PhD Research Studentship (full-time for 3 years).
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genome-wide, gene-specific patterns of glucocorticoid-receptor co-regulators critical for growth and skeletal development
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof C Farquharson, Prof T Freeman, Prof S Faisal Ahmed, Prof L Savendahl
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are a class of steroid hormones that bind and activate the intra-cellular GC receptor (GR), and regulate transcription of many genes that govern the effects of GCs.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round
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
Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Developing an in vitro Tissue-Engineered Skeletal Muscle Model to Study Ageing and Associated Conditions
  Dr L Santos, Prof C Sale
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The aim of this project is to develop a physiologically relevant cell model of skeletal muscle to investigate ageing, facilitate drug discovery and enhance our understanding of nutritional supplements and exercise.
  Role of Hedgehog signalling in skeletal muscle regeneration
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round
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.
