  Regulation of cell cycle progression in skeletal muscle stem cells
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscles to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of adult skeletal muscle stem cells called satellite cells.
  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.
  Role of primary cilia in skeletal muscle stem cells and muscle regeneration.
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary cilia are ancient organelles present at the surface of many cell types in vertebrates. In recent years, they have been shown to play essential roles in relaying sensory and signalling information from the environment to the cell.
  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.
  Osteoinduction Augmented Magnesium Medical Implants for Skeletal repairDublin City University - AMS Centre for Doctoral Training
  Prof Nicholas Dunne
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone repair materials are rapidly becoming a hot topic in the field of biomedical materials due to being an important means of repairing human bony deficiencies and replacing hard tissue.
  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.
  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.
  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.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Ligament and tendon repair using a specific population of joint progenitor cells
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ligaments and tendons stabilize the musculoskeletal system, controlling mobility. Anterior cruciate ligament in knee joints restrict the dimension of joint movement, while Achilles tendon transmit forces from calf muscle to bone enabling locomotion of ankle joints.
  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.
  Investigating Therapeutic Effect of Different Antioxidants in Friedreich’s Ataxia (FRDA)
  Dr S Anjomani-Virmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by epigenetic silencing of the frataxin gene. It is the most common inherited ataxia, affecting 1:50,000 Caucasians, and is characterised by neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus and skeletal deformities.
  Development of interventions combining exercise, patient education and pain management on free-living physical activity and quality of life in individuals with intermittent claudication.
  Research Group: Ageing Well
  Dr C Seenan, Dr U Abaraogu, Dr P Dall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20036 Seenan. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a common vascular disease which is characterised by pain and exercise intolerance, termed Intermittent Claudication (IC), due to reduction in blood flow to skeletal muscles in the lower limbs.
  Sex differences of ultra-endurance running: Profiling of female ultra-runners
  Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultra-endurance running has become increasingly popular, both in amateur and recreational athletes, with an exponential increase in the number of ultra-marathon finishers between 1998 and 2011 (Cejka et al., 2013; Hoffman & Krishnan 2013;).
  The role of functional foods in modulating the adaptive response to training (Ref: SF20/SER/HOWATSON)
  Prof G Howatson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing body of evidence to suggest that the use of bioactive foods can be beneficial in the management of post-exercise declines in muscle function.
