  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.
  Using a novel 3D co-culture model to define metabolic flux maps of different cancer cell types in response to physical activity
  Dr M Morris, Dr A Islam, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During exercise, and in the presence of sufficient oxygen, glucose is metabolised by muscle cells to produce pyruvate, a metabolic intermediate which is fed into the Kreb’s cycle in the mitochondria to produce large amounts of energy.
  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).
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  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.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Exercise and nutritional status on metabolic factors, hormonal responses and inflammation in women
  Dr J Allgrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, adverse cardiovascular events and metabolic syndrome-related disorders.
  Understanding the role of immune checkpoints in the regulation of T-cell migration
  Dr A Wadley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A healthy immune system can recognise and respond to foreign bodies such as bacteria/ viruses and damaged cells/ tissues, through a complex network of mechanisms that allow the migration of immune cells, such as T-cell lymphocytes between blood and tissues.
  Sex differences of ultra-endurance running: Profiling of female ultra-runners
  Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultra-endurance running has become increasingly popular, both in amateur and recreational athletes, with an exponential increase in the number of ultra-marathon finishers between 1998 and 2011 (Cejka et al., 2013; Hoffman & Krishnan 2013;).
  IPSCs as a model to study APP processing
  Dr S Aldred, Dr EJ Hill
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is a transmembrane protein found in many cell types around the body, most notably in brain cells such as neurons and synapses.
