  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.
  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).
  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).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Novel dietary protein formulations, skeletal muscle metabolism and ageing, Sport and Health Sciences – PhD (Funded)
  Dr B Wall, Prof F Stephens
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Supervisors. Dr Benjamin T Wall, University of Exeter. Dr Francis B Stephens, University of Exeter. The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with Marlow Foods, is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in April 2019.
  Investigation into the biological effects of exercise training on muscle wasting in patients with lung disease (ref: SF18/APP/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Applications accepted all year round
Accentuated skeletal muscle loss in patients with non-communicable diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a strong independent predictor of hospitalisation and mortality.
