  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.
  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.
  PhD Studentship in Orthopaedic Surgical Technology
  Prof A Hart
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Come and join the exciting area of bioengineering research to help innovate orthopaedic surgical technology. You will work in the leading medical implant retrieval research group, at the largest university in Europe (ranked 1st for Bioengineering), onsite at the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK.
  Exploring the potential for the use of spinal registry data in clinical trials
  Dr G Burnside, Mr M Wilby, Prof T Marson
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Clinical trials using routinely collected outcomes from registries are still relatively rare, but have potential advantages over the traditional model.
  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..
  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.
  (EPSRC DTP) Machine learning to explore the effect of Sarcopenia for patients undergoing cancer treatments
  Dr A McWilliam, Dr P Bromiley, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Half of people born after 1960 will develop cancer at some point in their lives, the majority will undergo treatment with the intention of curing their disease.
  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Application Deadline: 21 April 2019
"Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  Study to evaluate effectiveness of a Levitex pillow on sufferers of neck pain and impact on the rehabilitation process
  Dr J Webb, Dr M Dean
Application Deadline: 15 July 2019
Academic Supervisor. Jo-Anne Webb (Directorate of Occupational Therapy). Academic Co-Supervisor. Michael Dean (Directorate of Physiotherapy and Sport).
