  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Relating skeletal muscle oxygenation dynamics to exercise intolerance mechanisms in heart failure: patient-specific interpretation of near infrared spectroscopy measurements
  Dr A.P. Benson, Dr C Ferguson, Prof S Egginton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome, the principal symptom of which is profound exercise intolerance (an inability to perform even day-to-day activities), the severity of which relates to disease severity.
  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.
  (MRC DTP) The impact of centronuclear myopathy mutations in BIN1 on muscle function and structural organisation
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb, Dr C Pinali
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

Transverse tubules are surface membrane invaginations in skeletal and cardiac muscle.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of collagen VI in the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using combined imaging approaches including Cryo-EM
  Prof C Baldock, Prof G Cossu, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collagen VI is a unique member of the collagen superfamily which has a short collagenous region but arrays of globular domains and assembles to form beaded microfibrils.
  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.
  Sport and Exercise Science: Fully Funded PhD Scholarship: The influence of dietary patterns on in vivo skeletal muscle and vascular characteristics across adult ages

  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.
  Epigentic control of muscle development: the impact of chromatin accessibility on gene regulation (MUNSTERBERGU20DTP1)
  Prof A E Munsterberg, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle is important for health and well-being throughout life. To understand better the factors that contribute to the maintenance of this important tissue, we study its development in the embryo.
  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.
