  The molecular biology of back pain: identifying determinants of spine health amenable for therapeutic intervention
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We excel in high quality research that contributes to improved health and quality of life for older people and animals and alleviates chronic diseases at all ages.
  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.
  Bioengineering stem cells for neuroprotection against stroke
  Dr N Vasudevan, Dr E Delivopoulos, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
"Stroke, in particular ischaemic stroke, is the third major cause of death worldwide and there is significant health impairment in survivors.
  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.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round
Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  Design and testing of spinal implants
  Prof D Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round
Severe back pain may be treated surgically by removing the intervertebral disc and replacing it with a disc replacement. This project will investigate new designs of disc replacement and use a spine simulator to mechanically test them..
  Development of bioactive orthopaedic cement materials
  Prof W Palin, Dr R M Shelton, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
The widely used bone cement type, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) has many limitations including difficulty in handling, slow setting, shrinkage and heat production, which ultimately reduces the lifetime of the artificial implanted device.
  Effects of PDE4B inhibition on excessive weight gain-induced impairment in cognitive function in laboratory mice
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Clapcote, Dr J. Johnston
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In humans, obesity impairs cognition and produces atrophy of brain regions associated with learning and memory. Individual cognitive performance declines with increases in body mass and energy consumption.
  Mechanistic mathematical/computational modelling of the PAR polarity network
  Dr N Savage, Dr J Rodriguez
Applications accepted all year round
Cell function is dependent on cell shape. For example, dendritic spine morphology changes from filopodia, which are thought to be searching structures, to mushroom shaped once a potential synaptic connection is found, increasing the postsynaptic surface.
  PhD Development of machine learning algorithms for early prediction of lameness in cattle using heterogenous and irregular data
  Dr J Kaler, Dr T Kypraios, Prof M Green
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
This opportunity is based within Ruminant Population Health group at the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science which conducts cutting-edge research into the health and welfare of cattle and sheep focussing on endemic diseases.
