  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.
  Exciting opportunity to investigate the effect of B-alanine supplementation on skeletal and cardiac muscle function in older adults
  Dr R Jones, Dr J Richards
Application Deadline: 24 January 2019
Ref. ISPAR-BSS1. Department. Institute of Sport and Physical Activity Research (ISPAR). Please note. Actual location of study will be at the Bedford Campus.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Ciliogenesis and skeletal muscle regeneration: molecular mechanisms of stem cell maintenance
  Dr A G Borycki, Prof C A Johnson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project. Ciliopathies are a group of inherited developmental disorders caused by mutations affecting the structure or function of motile and non-motile cilia.
  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.
  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: 7 January 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.
  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.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  The role of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) degeneration in age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function
  Prof MJ Jackson, Prof A McArdle, Dr A Vasilaki
Applications accepted all year round
The NMJ (or motor endplate) is a highly specialised chemical synapse that transmits action potentials from motor neurons to muscle fibres.
