  Personalised rehabilitation for musculoskeletal and spinal pain
  Dr A Rushton, Prof D Falla, Dr N Heneghan
Applications accepted all year round
Our PhD students are an active part of our Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain (CPR Spine). CPR Spine was established at the University of Birmingham in 2016 following a ~£1M investment awarded to Professor Falla and Dr Rushton.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Characterising the pro-regenerative extracellular matrix in a spinal cord injury site
  Prof C G Becker, Prof Sue Barnett, Dr T Becker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. After a spinal cord injury, the lesion site is filled with fibroblasts and extracellular matrix (ECM) material that inhibits regeneration of the spinal cord in mammals.
  Spinal cord neuronal dysfunction in diabetic neuropathic pain
  Dr RP Hulse
Applications accepted all year round
Neuropathic pain is a common diabetic complication, with as many as 50% of patients suffering from sensory complications (burning pain, pins and needles).
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Developing exercise countermeasures for the prevention of musculoskeletal deconditioning in reduced gravity (RDF19/HLS/SER/WINNARD)
  Dr A Winnard
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Exposure to hypogravity environment causes musculoskeletal deconditioning. Primarily, this deconditioning is seen in the lower limbs and spine.
  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round
Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Functional Electrical Stimulation Control in Paraplegia
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round
"According to statistics from charities such as Every Eight Hours and Spinal Research, there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK and a new person is injured every eight hours.
  Developing the next generation of therapies for the childhood motor neuron disease, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
  Research Group: The Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone disease
  Prof T Gillingwater, Prof S Parson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease caused by mutations in the SMN1 gene. Excitingly, SMA has recently moved into a therapeutic era, with an approved SMN genetargeted therapy (nusinersen/Spinraza™) that improves many aspects of disease, including motor function and survival.
